Living with Art

Selected Works from the Margaret Penn Collection Of Haitian and African American Art

 

Stephen D. Rose, guest curator 

July 19-August 30, 2014

Opening Reception July 19, 5-7PM

This exhibition will highlight works by outstanding artists of African descent (both living and deceased) in Haiti and in the United States, and will be the vehicle for educational programming that contextualizes these pieces within the African American and the more encompassing American cultures. It will also focus on the joys and challenges associated with the collection and preservation of artwork.

This exhibition is made possible by the support from the Farmington Valley (CT) Chapter of The Links, Inc. and by a generous grant from The Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation.
