The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), a San Francisco-based arts and cultural institution dedicated to preserving and sharing stories of a common African heritage, reopens Dec. 3, 2014 following a six-month makeover. The museum, now a Smithsonian affiliate, joins a national network of cultural institutions that partner with the Smithsonian to share resources and expertise. Among the new exhibitions on display: Drapetomania: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba and Lava Thomas: Beyond.

“We could not be more excited to unveil MoAD’s grand makeover which will give us the space we need to explore how African culture has – and continues to – influence our world,” said Linda Harrison, executive director of MoAD. “Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a MoAD alumnus, we hope this transformation of the museum and our new exhibitions will help you to understand the important connections we all share with Africa and the African Diaspora.”
