In conjunction with Real Black: a spectrum of the Black present, the UMKC Gallery of Art will be hosting a family Friday. We will have the gallery open from 10 am-2 pm so friends, family, and community members have the chance to see the exhibition outside of our regularly scheduled hours. We will also be having a scavenger hunt in the gallery designed for children ages 5-10 to have a more guided tour of the show.* A participation prize will be available as well. Please RSVP for this event.
About Real Black: a spectrum of the Black present: This show illustrates both the experiences of living Black artists and visions of the future. This show delineates current history and a new era of civil unrest. As a display of the living, Real Black presents a glimpse into the beauty of daily life while depicting an auspicious equitable future.
Featuring works by: Phil Shafer, Jada Patterson, William Toney, Ari Bonner, Evan Jackson, Kat Looney, Frank Norfleet, Danielle Randle, Makayla Booker, Aaron Cecil, and JT Daniels
