Mus'Art Gallery - Profile

General Information

The Musa Heritage Gallery, shortly Mus’Art Gallery, was established in December 1996 dedicated in memory of Cameroonian woodcarver Daniel Kanjo Musa (1930–1995) and his eldest son John Yuniwo Musa (1956–1996). It houses a collection of over 400 art objects that were mainly created between 1970 and 2000 and range from bamboo work to wood carvings, from basketry to pottery.

Additional Information

Mus'Art Gallery is focused on the preservation, education and promotion of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Grass-fields of Cameroon. The arts can effectively be used to fight poverty; contribute to the creative sector; boost tourism and build on artistic wealth for the artists and for our nation. Our museum thus recognizes the arts as fundamental to job creation; income generation; for talented and unemployed youths as a sure path towards sustainability and growth from a non-formal setting. Traditional arts experiencing a decline must be revamped to ensure continuity and identity of our people.
