Features works by renowned U.S. Black artists. Reception is open to all. No reservation required. Guided tour requires reservation here.

Following the art exhibition’s opening reception, ACT Human Rights Film Festival will screen the documentary BLACK ART: IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT (dir. Sam Pollard, 2021) at 6:00 p.m. in the University Center for the Arts’ Griffin Auditorium. Inspired by the late David Driskell’s landmark 1976 exhibition, “Two Centuries of Black American Art,” the documentary Black Art: In the Absence of Light offers an illuminating introduction to the work of some of the foremost Black visual artists working today. No reservation required to attend the film screening.
