Museum Of the African Diaspora
DESCRIPTION: Founded in 2005, the museum has an international flava’ that showcases the “best of the best” from the vast African Diaspora. Drawing from the collections of museums and institutes worldwide, MoAD is more than anything, a collector of stories that are shared via technology and traditional means. Permanent exhibits include Celebrations—Ritual & Ceremony, Music of the Diaspora, Culinary Traditions, Adornment,
Slavery Passages, and the Freedom Theater. A healthy roster of touring exhibits include exciting artwork from the African Diaspora. The slavery narratives are soul-stirring in ways that can’t be described in words. MoAD also looks for forward with many contemporary exhibits like the Grace Jones Project and select contemporary videos in the Toni Rembe Freedom Theater. Since opening, MoAD and its neighbors, SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Contemporary Jewish Museum all create a dynamic cultural corridor for San Francisco.
