The Joan and Gordon Tobias Collection of African and Oceanic Art was given to the University in 1998. Following a year of intense research and documentation of the African art and artifacts, a major exhibit of selections from the African part of the collection was mounted. Following another year of research into the Oceanic part of the collection, an exhibit of those artifacts went on view. Educational materials on both of these collections are available to students and the public and an annotated catalog of both collections is available on CD.
