African Art Collection at SUNO Search

I didn't even know SUNO had an African art collection, and now that I do, I hear it was left to molder for nearly six months after it was flooded by Hurricane Katrina. The brand-new curator - she'd been there four months - was halfway through cataloguing the collection when the hurricane hit. Finally they are managing to decontaminate & begin the recovery process, but all of their textiles are lost. It's tragic. These stories just keep coming, and keep coming.
