    "Icons of Perfection"

    Visiting Professor Frank Herreman, noted Africanist and former Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Publications at the Museum for African Art in New York City, presented an introductory course on African art and museum studies to a small group of Hamline students.  With his students, Professor Herreman curated Icons of Perfection: Figurative Sculpture from Africa, that opened in the Hamline Galleries in December 2005.  The exhibition featured a selection of objects from both private and public collections, including The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and Curtis Galleries, Minneapolis.

    College of Liberal Arts students enrolled in Visiting Professor Frank Herreman's museum studies seminar contributed to the publication of Icons of Perfection, a comprehensive look at figurative sculptural traditions from across sub-Saharan Africa.
