The newest exhibition at the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery features sculptures and masks from the West African coast and Congo River region. These works exemplify African cultural traditions of ancestor worship and the practices of divination. The exhibit is curated by Dr. L. Adrien Hannus and his students in the Augustana Museum Studies course.

Works for this exhibition are drawn from the Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery. Works are also on loan from the University Art Galleries of the University of South Dakota and private collections. The exhibition is supported in part through the generous donations of Al Schoeneman.
