Tuesday, April 23, 2019: 30 Americans
Docent-Guided Tour: In the exhibition 30 Americans, discover contemporary African American artists who focus on important issues of racial inequality in the United States, poverty, racial stereotyping, and the power of protest. Through painting, photography, works on paper, sculpture, installation, and video, these artists present challenging themes that reflect the complexities of life in America.

Art-Making Session: Artist Nick Cave is well known for his sculptural “soundsuits” that transform people into works of art as they dance and jump. We’ll design a miniature cut-paper “soundsuit” of our own–full of pattern and color, and embellished with sculptural materials.
