The Life and Legacy of Ota Benga

A Special Installation and Panel Discussion

Ota Benga (about 1883–1916) was a grossly mistreated and mostly neglected figure in the history of our country. He was taken prisoner in the Congo and transferred to the United States for display in the 1904 World’s Fair and then sent to live in the Bronx Zoo with the apes; he eventually committed suicide in 1916.

Student-Curated Exhibitions at the Hood Museum of Art

Since 2001, the Hood Museum of Art has mounted an ongoing series of student-curated mini-exhibitions drawn from the museum’s collections. A Space for Dialogue is a unique aspect of the museum’s senior internship program. Mentored by museum staff, the interns perform independent research, select objects to exhibit, develop their own interpretive strategies, and express their ideas in their own voices.
