****Presidential Announcement****

James Wagner named Emory president: Emory’s 19th president, James Wagner, emerged as the unanimous choice of the Presidential Search Committee after an eight-month search for a successor to Bill Chace. Wagner, provost and vice president of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, was appointed president after a special meeting of the Emory Board of Trustees, July 30. Though his appointment is effective Sept. 1, Wagner will be on campus for the beginning of fall semester in August. “One of my first jobs as president will be to hold up an enormous mirror,” Wagner says. “I don’t know that even Emory people really understand what Emory is.” Click here or above for the full story.

African art at the Carlos: The cultural complexity and artistic diversity of Africa are celebrated in a new exhibit of sub-Saharan African art from the Carlos Museum’s permanent collection. Located on the museum’s third floor, the exhibit focuses on masks (such as the pictured late 19th/early 20th century Igbo helmet mask from Nigeria), figural sculptures, weapons and textiles from west and central Africa. Highlights include a rare Mambila shrine screen painted on a raffia palm pith, a late-19th century figurine of a bowl-carrier covered in blue bugle beads from Cameroon, and a Mande hunter’s jacket emblazoned with raptor’s claws and boar’s tusks. The museum has been actively collecting in this area since it acquired approximately 900 works from William Arnett in 1994. Photo special to Emory Report.
