MOBIL TO SPONSOR SHOW OF MODERN AFRICAN ART

 FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil said today that it will sponsor a landmark exhibition of 20th-century African art, "Africa Explores," opening February 13th and continuing through April 4th, 1993 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
 The show's 133 works are drawn from 15 different countries and reflect the extraordinary diversity of African art. The exhibition showcases the variety of media, methods, subject matter and patronage in African art and includes painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, engraving and printing. "Africa Explores" was organized and first shown by The Center for African Art in New York City and has traveled to other leading art museums in Berkeley, Calif.; Dallas, St. Louis, Charlotte, N.C. and the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh.
 "Mobil has consistently sponsored cultural programs to bring international arts to a wide spectrum of U.S. audiences and to foster greater understanding of different lands and cultures," said Mobil Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Allen E. Murray. "We're pleased to play a part in bringing this unique collection to Washington."
 Mobil has conducted business on the African continent since the turn of the century. The company markets petroleum products in 27 African countries and has extensive oil and natural gas production operations in Nigeria.
 The Corcoran Museum will offer a wide range of ancillary educational programs - with a special focus on families and children - in connection with the "Africa Explores" exhibition.
