Najjar Abdul-Musawwir: Deep Roots, From Africa to America

On view at Artspace 304 from June 10-July 22 is Deep Roots: From Africa to America, by Najjar Abdul-Musawwir. The exhibition revolves around the banjo as an object symbolizing Africa’s presence in America. For Abdul-Musawwir, a Professor of Fine Arts, the idea of valuing the banjo as an artifact of historic importance in present culture arose in discussions with students while teaching the African-American Art History course at SIUC. The sculptural works in Deep Roots: From Africa to America celebrate the banjo as one of Africa’s major contributions to American culture and music. The exhibition will have a closing reception on Friday, July 22 from 5-7 pm.
