Embracing Diverse Voices: A Century of African-American Art

 In 2017, Past Exhibitions


February 3 – April 29, 2017

This exhibition explores the diversity of experience and artistic expression among American artists of African descent. These works demonstrate as wide a range of stylistic approaches and viewpoints as one would expect of any group of Americans. While some works offer a glimpse of an artist’s personal vision, others speak out as bold political and social calls to action.


All works on view are drawn from the collection of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan, which also organized this exhibition.
