The imagine Africa exhibit drew me in with its bold colors, interactive activities and use of technology. Until someone pointed this out to me, I had not realized we could change the images by touching the screen. BANANAS! It was a perfect mixture of colorful fun with a touch of unexpected mystery. Although confused by some of the content- the picture of Eddie Murphy from the movie “Coming to America,” they did a great job at engaging patrons. The whites boards and consisted of white boards underneath each topic focus allowed us to engage in an open discussion, sharing insights on the question posed on the board as well as our thoughts about the exhibit.
Although it is difficult to see I wanted to share some pictures of the discussion boards. (I have not figured out how to upload multiple pictures so you may receive a slew of post of just images-sorry in advance.)
