Black Creativity

Juried Art Exhibition

Since 1970, the Museum of Science and Industry has hosted the Juried Art Exhibition, the nation’s longest-running exhibition of African-American art. The exhibition is a part of the Black Creativity program, which showcases African-American achievement in a variety of scientific, artistic and technological fields.

The Black Creativity Juried Art Exhibition presents approximately 100 works of art each year from African-American artists across the nation, featuring entries in both Adult and Youth categories. Emerging and professional artists are encouraged to submit works for consideration during the annual call for entries and participate in this amazing history.
