SDA Meetup: Art works from the African Diaspora

This is an opportunity to discuss the tools, techniques, materials, themes, and color palettes that have been used to create Afrocentric and African American art works over the past fifty years. Each month we will look at a variety of art works and share our knowledge about the art or artifacts that may have inspired the work. We will also use a series of questions to keep us engaged and provide an opportunity to share knowledge about the art, artifacts, and artisans.

Facilitator: Valarie Poitier

Date and time: Oct 21 at 2 pm ET; Nov 21 at 6 pm ET; Dec 21 at 6 pm ET
