The University of Virginia Art Museum held a festival dedicated to African culture Saturday, in celebration of their new exhibit "Man Ray, African Art and the Modernist Lens."
Festival-goers made their own African art, watched tribal performances and took tours of Man Ray's exhibit, featuring his work.
Bruce Boucher is the museum's director. He says Man Ray was influential in shedding light on African art.
"What strikes me about these images is their potency," Boucher explains. "They are the perfect balance between what's real and abstract."
The exhibit will run until October 10.
