“Perceptions: Encounters with African Art” (Oct. 7-Nov. 8) will examine some of the ways outside cultures interpret African art, and it will showcase FAMU’s Fine Arts collection and current student artwork. Opening Reception, Oct. 9.
“Perceptions: Encounters with African Art” is a visually-stimulating exhibition combining artwork from both Florida A & M University’s Fine Arts Collection and students in Visual Arts classes. The goal of this small exhibition is to examine some of the ways outside cultures interpret African art. This will be accomplished through didactic labels written by students in the African Art History course and student artwork based on different assignments in the fine arts courses. Students, under careful supervision, will assist with the exhibition design, art education, installation and deinstallation.
The exhibition will run from October 7th to November 8th in FAMU’s Architecture Gallery (1938 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Walter L. Smith Architecture Building). An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 9th from 4:00-6:00pm. The gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am to 5:00pm. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the neighborhood across the road.
