From the politically-charged work of Robert Colescott to the abstract expressions of Alma Thomas, African American artists are more visible than ever in the Akron Art Museum galleries. Join Director of Education Alison Caplan as we explore works by African American artists in the museum’s collection. This tour will culminate in an exploration of Nick Cave: Feat.
