The new exhibit "A Saint in the City: Sufi Arts of Urban Senegal" is the focus of this week's Pulse Podcast. You can also seen an accompanying video version that showcases the art.
The exhibit opened Thursday at the Spencer Museum of Art at Kansas University. It features art that surrounds the life of the Sufi sheik Amadou Bamba, as well as his followers, known as the Mouride Way.
The podcast features an interview with Gitti Salami, assistant professor of art history and of African and African-American studies at KU. Also, learn about some of the events going on in Lawrence in the upcoming days in our weekly Best Bets section.
