Collection of African art

The foundation has two exhibition halls in the Palacio de Santa Cruz (University of Valladolid), apart from the "Galería de San Ambrosio" located in the premises of the MUVa (Museum of the University of Valladolid). The collection of African art is a permanent exhibition in the "Salón de Rectores". The hall called "Renaissance" houses the largest and most important group in Europe of African terracotta sculpture. It spans more than 2000 years of the continent's history and almost all of the cultures who have made sculptures in this ancestral material, such as the Nok, Ife, Benin or Jukun cultures, among others. The "Galería de San Ambrosio" exhibits ethnological objects.
