ATHENS, Ga. -

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia plans to present an exhibition of traditional African art.

"From Savanna to Savannah: African Art from the Collection of Don Kole" is set to run from Jan. 19 to April 14. It features more than 40 works of traditional art from the early to mid-20th century.

It includes works in various media, including wood, bronze, terracotta, sandstone and cloth. They come from parts of sub-Saharan Africa and exemplify the visual and material culture of Africa that demonstrate cultural concepts and religious beliefs.

The works come from the collection of Don Kole, a Savannah-based real estate investor. Kole and his wife have made numerous trips to the continent to build their collection and educate themselves about traditional arts.
