ABOUT THE COLLECTION

          The Savannah African Art Museum holds a collection of over 1000 objects that hail from West and Central Africa. Prior to the Museum’s founding in late 2016 this collection formed over the last 30 years by Mr. Don Kole, a Savannah businessman, private collector, and founder of the Savannah African Art Museum. Mr. Kole’s collection of African art showcases a range of ceremonial and spiritual objects from the 19th and 20th centuries made from ceramics, metal, and wood. These powerful objects hold origins throughout West and Central Africa, representing 28 countries and over 150  individual cultures and ethnic groups. The diverse range of objects represented bisects the entire continent of Africa spanning as far west as Guinea and as far east as Tanzania.

          The Museum’s collection spans over 28 Countries that bisect the continent of Africa, and represents over 180 cultures.
