Mark and Mary Jo Wentzel
Collection of African Art

This ethnically diverse and aesthetically beautiful assemblage of tribal objects was generously gifted to UWM by Mark and Mary Jo Wentzel with the intent that it serve as a teaching collection for students and scholars. The Wentzel Collection of visually engaging objects, including figural sculpture and carved masks of wood, represent the culturally inspired work of the various ethnic groups from West Africa such as the Bamana, Baga, Baule, Dan, Dogon, Mende, and others.
