Class: Contemporary African-American Art and Artists
MARCH 30, APRIL 6, 13 & 27 – Fridays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Meet at Reuter Center (1 University Heights, Asheville 28804)
Instructor: Kristi McMillan, Adult Programs Manager
Through slides, videos, instructor overviews and assigned readings, discover African-American artists working today and explore themes treated in their work. In this discussion-based course, participants actively participate in frank, sensitive, and sometimes uncomfortable dialogues that lead to deeper understanding of the artists’ experiences and those of their own. As American artist Alex Grey said: “When artists give form to revelation, their art can advance, deepen, and potentially transform the consciousness of their community.”
