We look forward to relocating the Cultural Museum of African Art, Inc. – The Eric Edwards Collection (CMAAEEC) to Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, Brooklyn, NY in 2023.
As part of the installation, visitors can use VR to journey to the depths of the ocean, the deeper regions of African society or even inside the artifacts. This technology allows people to be completely immersed in an interactive adventure.The CMAA VR Experiences will transform the visitor’s view of African artifacts, themselves, and the world.
