Celebration of Black History Month

Celebration of Black History Month
FLINT, MICHIGAN  •  Flint Institute of Arts  •  Ongoing

This exhibition of important works of African American art from the FIA’s permanent collection is presented in the Ford Graphics Gallery in conjunction with the Hodge Gallery exhibition Something To Look Forward To. The exhibition features works by several eminent African American artists, including Romare Bearden, Clarence Carter, Jacob Lawrence, Kara Walker, and Charles White.

Also part of Black History Month, Something to Look Forward to presents 45 works by mature African-American artists who have created abstract images and objects during their careers. Twenty-two celebrated artists, over the age of sixty, were each invited to exhibit two works, created six to ten years apart. The works include paintings, sculpture, decorative art, and mixed media works by artists such as Melvin Edwards, Sam Gilliam, Alvin Loving, Sylvia Snowden, and Lawrence Compton Kolawole. Something To Look Forward To is organized by The Phillips Museum of Art, Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
