Art Gallery

Educational Exhibits Encourage Cultural Understanding

Art Gallery 03


The African Art Gallery at Norfolk State University displays artifacts from Ghana, Liberia, Mali, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Gallery exhibits supplement the classroom experiences of the University’s students and enhance their exposure to multicultural learning opportunities by making available to them a campus gallery featuring museum-quality African art pieces whose utilitarian functions are discussed in relationship to the history of the cultural groups they represent.

In accordance with the University’s historical role of serving as an educational and cultural resource for the Hampton Roads community, individuals and tour groups are welcomed at the Gallery. Weekend tours are available by appointment.
