I enjoyed the openness of this exhibit as well as the creative masquerades that were presented. All of the traditional African masks were outlining the perimeter of the large exhibit, leaving the man dressing in colorful clothing (shown above) in the center. This exhibit was very appealing to me due to the simplicity of the layout along with the dim lighting. The only relatively bright lighting was focused on the masks, making them stand out to the viewer. I appreciated the design because it did not make me feel trapped and each piece was given its own space, which I think is essential in order to appreciate the art.
