Albany -- A new exhibit debuted at the Albany Museum of Art as an informal kick-off to black history month.

"Spiritual Eyes, Human Hands" is part of the 2008 AFRIcultures gallery.

Dr. Onyile Onyile helped put the exhibit together.

He says many african cultures believe the world is divided into visible and invisible realms.

The exhibit reflects people's effort to create harmony between the spiritual and physical worlds through works of art.

"Most African art pieces were not carved for art's sake.  They have functional reasons why they are carved," said Dr. Onyile Onyile.

You can find out about Dr. Onyile's experience and expertise when he delivers a lecture on African artifacts at the museum on March 14th.
