Mali Pavilion

EXHIBIT: The Pavilion will proudly display the abundance of Mali’s art treasures, including live demonstrations of Malian crafts and art. Dogon dances will be performed, and on display will include such items as antelope sculptures (symbolizing courage), Kono masks, puppetry from the Bambara region as well as other regional artworks. The Urban Economy exhibit will display the urban modernization of Mali and the concept of the city-village, an important ideal in the overall development plan of Mali. The historic Sudanese architectures of Mali combine to create the impression of a culture growing and improving yet retaining the essence of its traditions. A recreation of a Mali Mosque represents the importance of faith in the Malian culture, as well as the importance of food as a means of bringing people together. The colors of Mali – the rich browns and golds of the grasslands, the deep blue of the River Niger and the greens of her forests and mountains, come together in the center to show how the Malian culture ties all the natural elements together.
