boma art exhibit boma art exhibit

During our opening week, we hosted Canadian artist Hans Poppe, who has family ties to  Iringa.  With his wonderful Swahili themed art work, it added a special touch to our launch.  Members of the community came to meet the artist as well as tour the museum.  We now have several pieces permanently on display in the Boma for our future guests enjoyment.

A big thanks to Hans and everyone who participated to make this exhibition possible.
