Bowers Museum proudly presents the world premiere of AFRICAN TWILIGHT: Vanishing Rituals & Ceremonies, now on view through January 6, 2019.

A masterpiece of storytelling, the Bowers multi-media African Twilight exhibit captures Africa's vanishing cultural landscape through images and video that illuminate the diversity and power of ancient tribal traditions.

Photojournalists Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher transport visitors to some of the most inaccessible regions of Africa to reveal rarely seen initiation rites of passage, colorful courtship rituals, regal ceremonies of vanishing royal kingdoms, and intimate healing practices for the living and the dead.

African Twilight-Vanishing Rituals and Ceremonies is organized by photokunst with support of Greg and Mary Moga and Jody Allen, Wild Lives Foundation and is presented by the Bowers Museum.
