It's always fun to find out how people get interested or involved in something. I'm a few hundred messages behind in the group, but I've read a few of the responses to this question and enjoyed them.Below is a link to my story on how I started collecting African art which I wrote for a talk I gave once. The story, like many things on my website, is in serious need of an update but it gives you my story.RAND

Subject: [African_Arts] What attracted you to beagan collecting the Arts of Africa
Date: Sunday, May 17, 2009, 9:01 AMHello Everyone,
I entered this group as a member because I figured it would be an excellent primary source to a project I am doing in school. Part of the project focuses on the relationship of today's modern people to their love of collecting artwork from Africa. So if you could please respond to the question " What attracted you to begin collecting the arts of Africa" I would greatly appreciate it.
