The Woodcarving of Lamídi Fakeye: Four Generations of Yoruba Masters and Apprentices

Bruce Haight, professor emeritus of history

Although there have been many exhibitions of Lamidi Fakeye's work, there has never been an exhibition of the four generations of Fakeye family woodcarvers' work held by WMU faculty. Professor Haight's lecture will tell the story of these developments and will comment on how their artistic styles have developed over the past 50 years. This program has been rescheduled from March 12, due to weather.
