It was not until 1913, after the Armory Show, that America truly opened itself to the world of art. It was around this time that Americans began to understand the beauty of African sculpture and consider them as fine art. Learn about America's relationship with art, in this exhibit that highlights the African artifacts coming directly out of this era.
