France: Museum of African Arts, Allex (A collection of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit); for over one hundred years, the Spiritans have brought back art from the places in Africa where they have lived and worked. A museum of African art is being created in Allex, France, providing an educational tool that helps to explore intercultural relatedness. The museum provides a valuable resource where people of African descent now living in France or visiting from abroad may explore, and deepen their knowledge and understanding of their rich artistic heritage.
The museum is scheduled to open in September of 2018. If you wish to contribute to this project click here and enter – African Arts Museum – where it says dedicate your generous gift.
