Ayeye: A Retrospective of Black History Month
(January 30 – March 2, 2018)
To commemorate Black History Month, the Center for the Arts has scheduled an exhibit exploring art works by local and regional African-American artists. This eclectic and collaborative exhibition includes photography, painting, and mixed media with subject matter ranging from studies of African culture and history to nature and travel photography. The term ayeye means “celebration” or “ceremony” in Yoruba. Ceremonies are considered a core value in Yoruba culture and involve the participation of not only family, but community. Join us in celebrating culture, history, and community at the Opening Reception, Saturday, February 3, 6-8 PM. Receptions are free and open to the public.
