Juried Art Exhibition: January 23 - February 24, 2013
The Black Creativity juried art exhibition presents approximately 100 works of art from amateur and profes¬sional African-American artists around the nation. A new feature is a youth component, with more than 30 pieces submitted from local high school artists.
This longest running exhibition of African-American art, which has been displayed annually at MSI since 1970, features paintings, drawings, fine art prints, sculpture, mixed-media, ceramics and photography, selected by a distinguished panel of five jurors led by Andre Guichard, former curator of the South Shore Cultural Center Fine Art Gallery and now a co-owner of Gallery Guichard in Bronzeville.
This exhibit is included in Museum general admission. It runs through February 24, 2013 in the Museum’s West Pavilion.
