Exhibition: Upendo – A Celebration of Love, Feb. 14 – Mar. 30 2017 @ National Museum

Dates: February 14 – March 30, 2017
Venue: National Museum of Kenya, Nairobi
Time: 9 am – 5 pm

Love can be considered a state of mind that only exists within a spiritual space. It is a feeling that is neither visible nor tangible. Love has been expressed in various ways through generations; it is said to transcend all senses and to reside in one’s life and soul.

In this exhibition that opened to the public on 14 February, St. Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love with paintings, photography, sculpture as well as objects and stories from our museum collection.
