Vancouver – Art selected from the collection of Richard and Susan Lee will be on display at WSU Vancouver Feb. 18 – Apr. 4 in the library.
 
The WSU Vancouver exhibit is an extension of the Clark College Archer Gallery’s “A Passion for Africa: Central African Art” which features over fifty objects from the Richard and Susan Lee collection.
 
The Lees developed their collection while living in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Republic of Zaire) for more than 10 years.
 
These exhibits represent over a decade of collecting artwork and discovered enthusiasm for traditional African art and the passion of collecting.
 
The exhibit consists of almost 50 objects ranging in age from the late 19th to early 20th centuries and includes masks, figural sculpture, architectural decoration, divination instruments, textiles, jewelry, emblems of leadership and musical instruments.
 
Entry to campus exhibits is free. WSU Vancouver’s library is open Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday – Sunday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
