The Culture of African American Art is now on display in the lobby of Republic Plaza, 370 17th Street, where the show will run through February 23.
But you might want to take a look at it before the crowds descend for a reception for the artists scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 3, with a presentation by Mayor Michael Hancock at 5:30 p.m. that evening.
Artists featured in the show, curated by Andra Archer, include Darrell Anderson (who's also served as guest curator), Dominique Bargaineer, S.A. Bennett, Jordan Casteel, Ed Dwight, Michael C. Gadlin, Juliette Hemingway, Ron Hicks, Rochelle Johnson, Helen Littlejohn, Donzell McDonald, Ella Maria Ray, John Toms, Floyd Tunson, Jerome Vaden, Irvin Webb and Otis Williams.
The show will be open during lobby hours: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday.
