About Us
In the early 1960s, the founding members of EAC – collectors, scholars, and art dealers – recognized the need for more education and information exchange in this emerging field of ethnic/tribal art. Museums were not focused in this area and little literature existed about Pre-Columbian, Oceanic, or African art. Seizing the initiative, this energetic group began funding, writing catalogues, and loaning/donating to museum artifacts from their own collections. Today, the EAC is a vibrant organization of over 200 collectors, art dealers, and enthusiasts who meet year-long in programs and activities focused on ethnic and tribal art.
