  • I am so moved by Anatsui's connection to his sources, materials, personal and cultural history and the art making process. I am deeply moved, inspired and humbled by this exhibition.

    — Cobra

  • Beautiful designs. Common throw-aways re-purposed and made useful for the world to enjoy.

    — Betty

  • There are hills & dips in every piece.

    — Ulysses (age 4)

  • Softness and strength; fluidity and structure, bound by collaboration. A true lesson and reflection of humanity at its best!

  • I wonder if the artist, as a boy, made the toys out of discarded materials, that many children in African countries make - the wonderful cars, planes, and bikes created out of metal and wire.

    I am awed by these large pieces that look so fluid, yet are created from hard metal pieces. Having only seen on or two of Anatsui's works at a time, I am delighted to have the opportunity to see so many of his works in one museum. Thank you.
