Escape the Museum: Central Africa

May 13 – August 18, 2018

This student-curated interactive exhibit explores the traditional arts of Central African peoples while also serving as the setting for a series of puzzles similar to an “escape room” game.  Visitors to the exhibit can use cryptic clues and notes found in the text to solve the puzzles in a specific sequence, ultimately revealing the solution to a mystery.  The exhibit features objects from the Kuba, Kongo, Mbuti, Shoowa, and Fang cultures.
