Collection proposal of african art object

MEMORANDUM

Dear Curator,

The Cantor Center has recently received a generous donation to support the expansion of our collection. We would like to continue growing the collectionas strength in the area of African art. Please advise us as to what object we should collect with these funds.

Sincerely,

The Board of Trustees

Your Assignment:

The next stage of your assignment is to conduct research about your object, and to propose an object that would complement it in the museumas collection. This stage has two components: an annotated bibliography and a two-page collection proposal.

Annotated Bibliography:

An annotated bibliography is a bibliography that includes a brief summary and evaluation of the source. Your bibliography will include at least five entries. You will need to research and identify at least four scholarly sources that are either articles from academic journals or scholarly books and at least one other source from another type of resource (periodical, encyclopedia, wall text etc.) Your annotation should be in Chicago Manual of Style format. You should give a brief summary of the source and identify why it is appropriate for your topic. There may not be many sources that are about your exact object, so you may have to explore related objects or topics such as the culture form which the object originates. (See me if you are having difficulty finding sources).
