Museum: Arts and Industries Building
Location: West Gallery
Approximately 150 percussion instruments, books, photographs, and stamps are used to explore percussion and its role in Afro-Caribbean music and to examine how cultural expressions travel to other lands, are preserved, and are transformed. The exhibition also tells the stories of Fernando Ortiz (1881-1994), a pioneering Cuban anthropologist, and Dr. Joseph Howard (1912-1994), who assembled a collection of over 700 percussion instruments from all over the world. Instruments are on loan from the Howard Collection.
