African-American Artists: Zoom Gallery Tour

Led by Adria Sherman

Thursday, August 20


In acquiring prints and drawings by African-American artists, the goal of the Princeton University Art Museum has been to provide a rich cross section of figurative and abstract images that explore the black experience from a variety of perspectives, past and present. Portraits raise the viewer’s political and social consciousness and works by contemporary artists involve more conceptual investigations of cultural, gender, and racial identity. Virtually unseen in the museum forty years ago, African-American art is now a dynamically evolving presence in the Museum and can serve as the springboard for multidisciplinary conversations.

Programs are free and open to the community. Please see for the zoom link; password required, email
