Join us for the final program of Black History at the de Young: The Visions Series.
This series began as a film program at the de Young last winter celebrating the significant contributions that the peoples of African descent have made and continue to make in art and culture. This year we have expanded this idea, and for five months, we will continue to celebrate and explore various aspects of Black cultural expression. Many collection objects at the de Young inspire this series: the collection of traditional African art; and the works of various African and African American artists, including Joshua Johnson, Horace Pippin, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Aaron Douglas, Claude Clarke, Robert Colescott, Mildred Howard, Oliver Jackson, El Anatsui, Raymond Saunders, Richard Mayhew, and Walter Hood.
Friday Nights at the de Young public programs are free of charge. Tickets are required to view permanent collection galleries and the special exhibitions.
