The Art of Africa: A Resource for Educators (Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications)
A Guatemalan textiles collection was started by a donation in numbering 50 pieces, collected by Harvard anthropologist Samuel K. Lothrop in the early twentieth century. It now numbers examples, and complements North American Native and pre-Columbian textile holdings. Robert R. In recent years, the Lowe has augmented the collection through careful purchases. We're the Museum on Oxford Road with the dinosaurs, mummies and live animals.
We also have loads of other great stuff from the natural world and different cultures. These include fossils, rocks and minerals, stuffed animals, birds and insects, money, archery, lots of things made or used by people from different cultures and archaeological finds including ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek. The mission statement of the Museum includes using "its international collection of human and natural history for enjoyment and inspiration, working with people from all backgrounds to provoke debate and reflection about the past, present and future of the earth and its inhabitants".
It is housed in Palazzo Mazzonis, an eighteenth-century building. The complex contains rooms for permanent displays and temporary exhibitions, a conference hall, rooms for teaching activities and a bookshop. The Museum of Medicine has been going strong for more than 20 years; it is based on the university campus of the Erasme Hospital in Brussels; in itself, its construction alone is rather unusual, with its curves and counter curves and mass of iron, stone and glass.
Its heritage is made up of more than 10, works of art and archaeological treasures on the theme of medicine in art, history and literature, from antiquity up until the present day, including Egyptian, African and Asian pieces. The most significant of these are on display in 8 rooms; explanatory panels and visio-guides are available to visitors.
The museum has been designed with a multi-disciplinary approach, with the involvement of doctors, historians and art historians. Its philosophy is academic, with scientific research, the publication of original books, specialist historic and artistic work, using recent medical imaging techniques, international partnerships, loans and involvement in projects.
It also puts on in-house and travelling exhibitions for school groups as well as experiences designed for foreign visitors. The Museum is recognised by the Wallonia Brussels Federation. The main building houses special exhibitions and the permanent collection, and it anchors a campus with three other museum buildings: two are dedicated to single artists Cy Twombly and Dan Flavin and another to year-long installation projects; a fourth building is under construction for a drawing institute.
