Michael Whittington is Curator of Pre-Columbian and African Art at the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, NC. He received his B.A. in anthropology from West Georgia University and an M.A. in art history from the University of Florida where he specialized in pre-Columbian art with additional coursework in African and Native American art. He conducted his graduate field work in Peru and has undertaken additional research in the West Indies and southern Mexico. Michael has been a Curator at the Mint for the past five years. His most recent accomplishment is the organization of the exhibition, The Sport of Life and Death: The Mesoamerican Ballgame, which opened at the Mint in September 2001 and will travel nationally in 2002. The exhibition has received major funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Rockefeller Foundation. The catalogue is published by Thames & Hudson (New York/London). Among his many professional activities, Whittington co-organized the recent symposium, Praying for Rain: Style and Meaning as a Response to the Environment in Ancient American Art, at the International Congress of Americanists in Warsaw, Poland.
