Organization: Canton Museum of Art
Description: "African American Masterpieces: Permanent Collection Highlights" on view through March 4, 2018. African American art is a comprehensive term describing the visual arts of the American black community. In the past, African American art was expressed through basket weaving, small drums, quilting, pottery, painting, and woodcarving. After the Civil War, African American works were slowly accepted in American culture - however, their art was better received in Europe than in America. Today, most major cities have developed museums devoted to African American artists. Important collections of African American art are becoming more prevalent, this exhibition celebrates the works from the Canton Museum of Art Permanent Collection. In conjunction with the woodcarvings of Elijah Pierce, this exhibition showcases paintings and ceramics created between 1945 and 2010.
