Brooklyn man shows off African artifacts at Center for Arts and Culture

A Brooklyn man is finally getting the chance to show off his rare African art collection that he has accumulated over the past 45 years.



As part of the Center for Arts and Culture's 50th anniversary of restoration, Eric Edwards is displaying 50 of his unique artifacts.



Edwards has over 2,000 pieces of African art and tribal artifacts from all 54 countries on the continent, worth about $10 million.



The collector founded the Cultural Museum of African Arts in his home in Brooklyn and is fundraising to find a permanent building to house his treasures.



The exhibit will be open to the public for free until April 28.
