About this Event
Opening reception and artist panel, held on Friday, January 27th from 12-2PM. (Program begins at 12:30).
The Art of The African Diaspora Satellite Exhibition in collaboration with SJPL and SJSU Library is an extension of the Art of the African Diaspora exhibit held in the Richmond Center of Art which presents the work of emerging and established Black artists, introducing them to new audiences. This amazing exhibit features the works of Kelvin Curry, Stephen Bruce and TheArthur Wright.
Art of the African Diaspora is the longest running event of its kind in the Bay Area. It originated from a salon for African American artists known as Colors of Black that was organized in 1989 by artist and professor Marie Johnson Calloway. Over the next twenty-five years the exhibition ensured increased visibility for African American artists in the Bay Area. In 2018, the Steering Committee, comprised of participating artists, presented the exhibition, and in 2019, renamed the organization Art of the African Diaspora.
