We're going to do something a little different

On November 10 the National Museum of African Art is proud to open an exhibition showcasing the multi-dimensional work of the artist Yinka Shonibare, MBE.

Instead of one voice talking about the exhibition we have invited our staff to post comments particular to the contributions they give.

I serve as Webmaster for the museum and since I created this blog I've decided to make the first entry. In the future, you will hear from the curator of the show as well as conservators, design staff, administration, our cabinet shop, everyone. Our hope is to give you a glimpse into how a national museum decides, designs and builds an exhibition and since Sir Shonibare's work speaks on many levels we thought it was a perfect show to talk about.

Please contribute to the conversation. On Nov. 10, we will be launching a web site devoted to the show and conversations will be possible through Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned!
Mike
