Regularly scheduled FREE tours (donations accepted) at the Gallery of African Art, every Thursday through 2013. Gallery of African Art Director Zach Combs offers informal tours of the Gallery collection of more than 600 African tribal artifacts. Mr. Combs has had a history with the Gallery since it’s expansion in 2011, offering tours of the collection, music and drumming lessons and sharing his extensive expertise on the art and culture of African arts.

The Gallery of African Art established by art collector Gordon B. Lankton, is an educational museum display comprising a collection of more than 600 African tribal masks, figures, sculpture and artifacts crafted in stone, wood, clay and bronze, spanning 32 tribes, including Dogon, Baule and Bamana art. The collection is representative of predominantly West African tribes and traditions. Like African art in general, Lankton’s collection emphasizes the human figure, visual abstraction, sculpture and the representative accouterments of ceremonial performance art.
