In selecting which photos went up on the official website, we tried to look for those that showed off the installation best. But in our less formal blog, some of the other wonderful shots deserve to be seen! These wonderful photos aren't mine; they were taken by the Museum's own Lauren Hansen-Flaschen and Jennifer Chiappardi, both of whom got right in there to capture the contagious glamour of Benin. So, a flurry of posts this morning to stir viewers to make their own stories by visiting the exhibition.
Here Penn's African Studies director Lee Cassanelli converses with Penn Law School overseer Osagie Imasogie, Museum overseer Peter Gould, and Robin Potter in Benin City red.
