The Traveling Exhibit Showing the Works of Over 80 African-American Artists
“Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio Museum in Harlem” will be shown at six U.S. venues.
Black History Month is a time to celebrate and honor members of the African community who’ve left a significant mark or have paved a new road for future members. Some of the most influential members have been and continue to be artists who encapsulate the essence of their period. Some of these artists’ works can now be viewed in The American Federation of Arts’ traveling exhibition, Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio Museum in Harlem. It features the works from over 80 noteworthy artists, ranging from Njideka Akunyili Crosby to Kerry James Marshall. With over 100 works from the 1920s to the present, the exhibit will be shown at six venues across the United States including Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco, CA (January 16 – April 14, 2019); Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC (May 24 – August 18, 2019); Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, MI (September 13 – December 8, 2019); Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton, MA (January 17 – April 12, 2020); Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA (May 9 – August 2, 2020); and Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City, UT (August 28 – December 13, 2020).
