Inspired by Yoruban art from West Africa, where more than half of the 18th century slave trade took place, the building’s form emulates that of the traditional Yoruban wooden caryatid, while the bronzed aluminum panels that clad the structure are informed by the ironwork of African American slaves in 19th century New Orleans. The marriage of these two distinctive cultural influences echoes and supports the museum’s mission .
