#WisdomWednesday: Gus Casely-Hayford, Smithsonian National Museum of African Art

“One of the few places in which we can emotionally make contact with our fellow human beings, in which we can talk to the really significant, existential things that truly matter to us, is the arts. It is the thing that elevates us rom other kinds of beings, the ability to make that kind of connection consciously. The valuing of art is the valuing, in my mind, of our humanity." — Gus Casely-Hayford, Director, Smithsonian National Museum of African Art
