Red Gold: West African Currency Objects
Curated by Matthew Morowitz ’11

In traditional West African cultures, wealth has long been displayed and demonstrated through a variety of objects, including metal bracelets, ceremonial bells and related castings. Such objects were used in a variety of social, ritual and financial transactions that stretch from tribal uses, up through the slave trade and into the 19th century. This exhibition explores the symbolic functions of such objects and their relation to western symbols of wealth. For any further information please review the PDF of the Red Gold Brochure and contact keifer@dickinson.edu.
