African sculpture expressing
native emotions about the human

The national American Associa-
Host to Foreigners
Arranging programs for disting-
uished scientists, educators and
other visitors to the University
from all over the world is one of
the many functions of the Inter-
national Center, according to Dr.
Esson M. Gale, director..
The Center brings visitors into
contact with administrative offi-
cers and teaching faculties in their
fields of interest, Dr. Gale ex-
Such visitors are interested in
University administration, and in
educatonal methods in high
schools and primary schools.
Many inspect the University and
arrange to place students from
their countries in the various de-
partments of the engineering col-
lege, in special divisions of the
Medcal School, in Public Health,
forestry or other departments of
the University, according to Dr.
Continuous from 1 P.M.
- Last Times Today -
tion of University Women is spon-
soring the art show throughout
the country to demonstrate the
place of African Negro art among
the esthetic traditions of the
world. Artistically discovered forty
years ago by a group of Parisian
artists, African sculpture today
has an undisputable position inar4y
consideration of the plastic arts.
Basic "Understanding Needed
A basic understanding of the
totally different social and re-
ligious customs which dominated
the ancient African civilizations
is necessary beforethe sculpture
of this continent can be appre-
ciated fully by critics used to
judgng works of art by European
The African Negroes were not
blissfully carefree savages as
European explorers first des-
cribed them. They were a people
bound by unbelievably strong re-
ligious convictions, mystical ideas
aid social restrictions. Many of
their empires included cultural
backgrounds comparable to those
cvilizations occupying the rest of
the world during that period.
Religion Is Guiding Force
Religion was the guiding force
in the Negro's life an actions
and became the dominant motiva-
tion in African sculpture. The Af-
ricans worshipped one supreme
god, but human death to them
meant merely the absence of vis-
ible existence. Believing that their
deceased lived on with powers to
help or hinder the lives of their
earthly descendants, the Negroes
prayed for helpful ancestral fav-
Many strange customs arose
from this mystical idea. The
sculptural likenesses erected of
the deceased relatives were not
meant to be worshipped as wood-
en effigies. The Africans acutlly
believed that these carved models
housed the souls of their dead
A free range of imagination,
unhampered by traditional adher-
ence to realistic representation,
was employed in the treatment of
the human figure by the native
artists. Certain parts of the body
and individual traits of the de-
ceased relative were emphasized
by the Negro sculptors.
Thephotographs and original
art objects on display in the pre-
sent exhibit demonstrate the
sculptural style peculiar to the
ancestor fearing African artist.

sponsoring the local Negro Art
Exhibit which will remain until
Dec. 20 in the West Gallery of
the Alumni Hall Museum of Art.
