Over the past many years, a limited amount of attention has been focused on art education. For instance, on July 23, 1958, Emperor Haile Selassie inaugurated the first “By African For African” art gallery on the continent. The gallery’s namesake, Artist Alle Felege Selam, was present at the event and said, “We have partnered with this group because we remember it and rely on its splendid significance to revise and increase high-quality art in our country.” Ethiopian art and other works of art could easily contribute to the efforts to have Ethiopia recognized more widely as a state that is fully embracing the spirit and substance of contemporary civilization if they achieve the kind of high popularity that allows them to “hold their own” among famous works from other countries. In April 1966, eight years later, President Leopold Sedar Senghor of Senegal sponsored the Pan African-driven World Festival of Black Arts in Senegal, which promoted the global black lifestyle.
