Whether familiar with Africa’s rich artistic history or new to it, art lovers visiting Washington, D.C. should make time for the National Museum of African Art, whose 9,000-plus objects represent all parts of the continent from ancient to modern times. The highlight of the permanent exhibitions is a selection of 60 works from the Walt Disney–Tishman collection of traditional sub-Saharan art, a major influence on African art history. Pieces from the museum’s collection of traditional and modern ceramic works are also on permanent display. Source: thedisctrict.com
