Say it Loud: Art by African and African-American Artists in the Collection

December 27, 2012 - March 3, 2013

Paintings, sculpture, photographs and works on paper by artists either residing in Africa or of African descent comprise this exhibition which celebrates art in the Norton Museum’s collection.  Examples will span the twentieth and twenty-first century representing ideas and issues found in, for example, James Vanderzee’s 1915 image of his first photo studio; Al Loving’s untitled tie-dyed, abstract canvas; Carrie Mae Weems panels with photos and text; and the sculptural Soundsuits of Nick Cave.


Organized by Cheryl Brutvan, Director of Curatorial Affairs, Curator of Contemporary Art, Norton Museum of Art

This exhibition is made possible in part through the support of The Diane Belfer Endowment for Sculpture.  Additional support provided by the West Palm Beach Chapter of The Links, Incorporated.
