On Friday, April 5, Baba Shabu, a renowned Liberian painter, celebrated his 90th birthday with an exhibition at the newly-established Art House on U.N. Drive in Mamba Point.
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has urged Liberians to protect, maintain, and defend the refurbished National Museum to enable it to grow.
The National Museum of Liberia, which was neglected during Liberia’s protracted civil crisis and saw many of its items stolen, has come alive again.
The National Museum of Liberia is expected to reopen at the end of October this year, according to its director, Albert Markeh.
The art and the beauty of what used to be Liberia is greater than what its national museum has to offer so Liberian artists like Chase Walker have used their talent to offer a new and fresh perspective of Liberian culture through his work as an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer.
