Explore the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco's new acquisition of 62 works by contemporary African American artists. Revelations faces the diverse and complex history of America through artworks in various media, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and quilts. These pieces draw upon themes of the African Diaspora, slavery, institutionalized racism, and civil rights. Placed in the context of the larger American art collection at the museum, the works have the potential to influence American social studies. The resources for this program are geared for students in grades 3–5 and 8–12.
