Reframing South Africa

Reframing South Africa: Quilts and Photographs
RCAH LookOut! Art Gallery
May 13 through September 27
Mon-Fri, 12-2 p.m. and Fri 5-8 p.m.
Always free and all are welcome.


This exhibition draws together objects from two campus collections: quilts from the unique collection of African quilts at the MSU Museum and photographs, recently acquired by the MSU Libraries, taken by American photojournalist Leonard Freed (1929-2006) in the lead-up to South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. Together, these objects reframe ideas about art and the end of apartheid in South Africa.
