The Museum for African Art pivots toward policy | Pralines | Scoop.it
The Museum for African Art is expanding its mission, aiming now to create a policy center akin to Asia Society as it attempts to raise the money needed to finish the long-delayed construction of its home.

The institution's plan to reinvent itself as the New Africa Center—with a museum, policy institute and members' club for business executives, cultural leaders and policy makers interested in Africa—comes after the departure of the museum's longtime president, Elsie McCabe Thompson, in October. A successor hasn't been named.
