Congo Art ExhibitCongo Mission Exhibit and Discovering Congo Art: The Role of Missionaries Exhibit are now both open at the Presbyterian Heritage Center. Come learn about the 125 history of the American Presbyterian Congo Mission — its integrated pioneers during a time of American Jim Crow laws, its successfull campaign against King Leopold's atrocities on the native population, its trials and tribulations — as well as how Congo Art influenced early 20th Century modern art.

The PHC's display of about 100 artifacts from Congo Kuba, Luba, Songye and Pende groups is just a small portion of what is a top 10 Congo Art collection located in the United States. See king statues, ceremonial weapons, decorated masks, everyday living implements.
