Telling A People’s Story: Traveling Panel Exhibition
Thursday, November 21, 2019
For the first time, African-American children’s illustrated literature is the focus of a museum exhibition featuring art produced for book illustrations. The presentation of this genre offers a lens into the cultural, historical, and social makeup of African-American cultural identity, while also shedding light on the long neglected world of African-American authors and illustrators in the pantheon of children’s literature.
The exhibition is organized by the Miami University Art Museum through a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
Come view the panels from Oct. 16th-Dec. 5th at our Newport Branch.
