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 both Hans and the program director, Jan for working together with me to make this show possible. I hope it is the first of many……
