Albany - - Ever been to Africa? Now you can for free and you don't have to leave South Georgia to do it.
The Albany Museum of Art unveiled its latest exhibit Saturday evening. It's called Royal Bronzes from the Republic of Benin.
It features treasures from the African country and a re-creation of a royal throne room in Benin. Each piece gives a glimpse of Africa's cultural history, religious beliefs, ceremonies, and traditions.
The owner of the collection says in Benin, sculptors are viewed with high regard.
"It elevates you up to a very high level. It is one of the few countries where the artisans are on as high a level as the general. It's amazing how much they revere the handwork," says Susan Rochfort.
"The majority of the pieces here this evening will be seen for the first time in the United States, they will be traveling after they leave the Albany Museum of Art," says Calandra Jefferson.
An African drum team performed for the crowd to help set the scene. The exhibit will be on display at the museum until August 11th.
