NEH on the Road: Bandits and Heroes, Poets and Saints

Bandits and Heroes, Poets and Saints explores how the ancient cultures of Africa blended with indigenous and colonial Portuguese traditions to form the vibrant and complex cultural mosaic of modern Brazil. Engaging photographs and works of popular art, including sculptures, paintings, prints, religious objects, toys, and booklets of poetry, will draw visitors into the complex and vibrant culture of the Northeast of Brazil. This grant money will be used to pay honorariums to presenters in association with the Bandits and Heroes exhibit.
