Hodge Collection

Selections from the Celeste and Reginald Hodges Collection: African art, from traditional to modern

The exhibit explores the evolution of African art including wood and stone carvings, textiles, ceremonial headpieces, ivory, and household items. The display includes a wide range of items from a gold-inlayed leather portfolio from Morocco, in North Africa, to a beaded Zulu fertility doll from South Africa, two cultures separated by 7,500 miles. Most of the artworks displayed are from rural West Africa, where Celeste and Reggie Hodges met and lived for two decades from the 1960s to the 1980s.
