The African Art Project

CAAAS Archives

When the Center decided to create an archival component, it desired to develop a collection of manuscript, printed, and audiovisual materials, as well as an art collection, that would further enhance curricular offerings. Its mission was consistent with that of the Center and the vision of the archivist was the development of a collection to facilitate the goals of its parent body.
