From learning to crawl to getting married, Asante people are given a personal stool for each milestone of their lives. Each stool is also a representation of its owner’s soul, and must be handled carefully when not in use so that the soul is not disrupted. Learn more about these symbolic objects at “The Power of Gold”. #PowerOfGold

Renovations to the Sculpture Garden are nearly complete! Our Ellsworth Kelly was re-installed this week after being off view for nearly six months. The sculpture was placed in the same location as before because this exact spot was chosen by Kelly himself when it was first installed at the DMA in 1984. #EllsworthKelly
