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 Museum’s 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. Emerging and professional artists are encouraged to submit works for consideration and participate in this amazing history.
