The Walt Disney Company donated its impressive 525-piece collection of African art to the Smithsonian in 2005. Eighty of the sculptures, masks, and carvings--many of which have never been exhibited before--will be on display at the National Museum of African Art in Washington, D.C., from Feb. 15 to Sept. 7, 2008 (africa.si.edu, free)

Yeah, and you should have read the scathing review done by one of the Washington Post's columnists that basically blasted Walt Disney for originally purchasing the collection for use in an African pavillion at Epcot. He obviously is not a fan of Mickey.

I'll post it when I can find it...
