Picture Stories: A Celebration of African American Illustrators

Celebrating the art of twelve African American illustrators, Picture Stories provides an engaging and informative overview of the African American tapestry through visual narratives, which resound with authentic voices. The art, chosen to present a wide spectrum of scenes and events, includes folktales, traditions, cultural experiences, and individual contributions, all of which define the proud heritage of Black History.

This exhibition is curated by Sylvia Nissley. 

This exhibition is made possible by a generous grant from Helen and Peter Bing.
