The Black American Artist Experience
From the American enslavement of African people in the 17th century to the Civil War years and Emancipation’s promise of equality, to the Civil Rights Movement of the 20th century and the struggle for justice in our times, Black American artists have created a vibrant, manifold art heritage, an essential component of Black American culture. For most of its history this art has received limited recognition from art historians and the American public at large. In a recent dramatic shift, auction houses, galleries, museums and collectors have acknowledged that Black American art is a key element of what defines American art and popular interest has exploded with increased awareness of its substance, scope, beauty and lasting value. Examine the 300-year legacy of Black American painting, sculpture and other media in this 4-part lecture series Guest speakers include artists, collectors and museum curators.
