Celebrating 50 years of Black Creativity at MSI.

The Museum of Science and Industry celebrates the rich contributions of African Americans in science, technology, engineering, art and medicine with a robust series of experiences and events during Black Creativity’s milestone anniversary. Beginning in 1970 as a tribute to African Americans in the arts, Black Creativity has grown to feature the nation’s longest-running exhibition of African-American art along with exhibits, events and educational programs. Black Creativity aims to deepen students’ engagement through hands-on learning and expose African-American youth to careers and opportunities in creative and STEM fields.

These experiences and events (except Gala) are included in Museum Entry.
