'Heroes: Principles of African Greatness'



Be your best. This is the quest that the greatest of heroes model for us.

Daily, Now - Dec 31, 2021. From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM

Be your best. This is the quest that the greatest of heroes model for us. Through their journeys, struggles, and triumphs, exceptional individuals exemplify values that we celebrate in tales of heroic accomplishment.

Through art, artists tell such stories—stories of the world’s current complexity, but also visions of a world that could yet be. Heroes: Principles of African Greatness features artworks from the National Museum of African Art’s permanent collection that tell the story of key heroic principles and personages in Africa’s arts and history. Throughout, core values are considered as each artwork is paired with a specific historic African individual who embodies the value expressed in the selected work.

Discover Africa’s heroes—some well-known, others perhaps surprising—and see artworks in new ways.
