We are delighted to have you join us on an on line exhibition preview, just for students like yourself. Pick up your pass for two—it will be much more interesting if you bring a friend along. You’ll want to discuss much of what you’re about to learn, and it’s much simpler to have a partner right there to share the visit with you.

You’ll have a chance to visit the exhibition, meet some of the featured artists and their works, and then join the exhibition planning team to decide where a few chosen works might be placed in the exhibition.


On your journey we will introduce you to Islam in West Africa, to the Sufi movement within Islam, to the Mourides and their beliefs, and to Amadu Bamba, an African Sufi saint.

Some of the terms in that last sentence may be new to you, and if so, let us explain them. Just click on an unfamiliar term in the glossary and a short definition will be shared with you.

 
Amadu Bamba
