New Art Show Explores African American Identity

The exhibit of paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures is called “30 Americans” and examines black identity in the United States. The idea is that African Americans are simply Americans.

This exhibition focuses on issues of racial, sexual, and historical identity in contemporary culture while exploring the powerful influence of artistic legacy and community across generations.
