Exhibition: Africa by Art Odhis, Aug. 1-31 2014 @ Temporary Exhibition Hall – National Museum
CATCH IT BEFORE IT ENDS! Fifty Years. Half a decade. The age of a country on the road of sovereignty, self-governance and gaining her voice in the global world. Has it been too long? Is she still too young? Either way, it has been an exciting journey to the emerging country that she is today. Come take a walk through her history, appreciate the turning points. A transforming experience by means of visual art. The dominating expressionist style by the artist makes you feel the struggles, triumphs and resilience of the country, the continent and its people. Arthur Patrick Odhiambo takes a look into the African shapers of the past fifty years. The exhibition of the legends of years past and present are pieces that allow you to feel the soul of the African people. The artist captures Africa’s cultural diversity and brilliantly marries it to contemporary visuals of the new age African. Bring your whole self in, bring your children in, bring your family and friends and experience Africa at the National Museums of Kenya, Creativity Gallery Hall. Happy Anniversary Kenya! Viva Africa! Be happy, Be bold.
