  • “Black Art - Ancestral Legacy" at Patterson Branch Library
    Dates: 12 Feb – 12 Mar, 2018

    Beginning February 12, 2018 at 10:00am, the Patterson Branch Library will present “Black Art—Ancestral Legacy: The African Impulse in African American Art,” a traveling display based on the major exhibition organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    “Black Art—Ancestral Legacy” is a photographic exhibition that addresses the question posed by African American poet Countee Cullen in 1926: “What is Africa to me?”  This exhibition provides a number of examples from twentieth-century African American artists—both trained and untrained—that visually respond to this question. These modern artists draw heavily on African influence, while simultaneously reinterpreting it for a different time and place. The exhibition surveys the work of forty-five artists, including unknown Africans and Haitians, through photographs, posters, and concise texts. The result is a lively and vibrant mix of artworks.

    The exhibition will be on display for the public from February 12, 2018 to March 12, 2018 during library hours.

    The site is offering free programs and other events for the public in connection with the exhibit. Texas Tech University’s Director of the School of Art, Lydia Thompson, will present at the annual African American History Month Program on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 2:00pm on ‘Black Art: The importance of objects and culture’.  For more information on the programs offered or the viewing hours, contact the Patterson Branch Library at (806) 767-3300.

    Humanities Texas develops and supports diverse programs across the state, including lectures, oral history projects, teacher institutes, traveling exhibitions and documentary films. For more information, please visit Humanities Texas online at http://www.humanitiestexas.org or call (512) 440-1991. This exhibit was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through the support of the Friends of the Library.
