A Culture Preserved (in the Black Experience) Curated by Louise Cutler
August 1 - October 19
A Culture preserved in the Black Experience addresses how Black culture and its heritage reflect and shape values, beliefs, and aspirations, which define a people’s identity by bringing together the past and the present, the old meets the new black artistic world. It is important for Blacks as a people to preserve and share their cultural heritage through the arts, as it keeps and holds their truths as a people. This exhibit is here to present and preserve the Black visual artist narrative. Exploring how they relate and fit within the American dream where Blacks have had to reshape and reformulate their identities. Researchers have found that just 1.2% of Art pieces In most major Museums were made by Black artists, which means that in the eyes of America the Black artist creativity is not being presented or preserved within the vast majority of artistic conservational institutions. Consequently the Black/African American story is not being fully preserved for future generations. This exhibit is here to help change that. The exhibit will include the works of several artists from across the country seasoned and mid-career. It will include a mixture of painting, drawing and sculptures.Museum
