‘Art of the African Diaspora’ is the longest-running event in the Bay Area. The showcase exhibition at Richmond Art Center features work by over 120 artists of African descent. This exhibition is accompanied by open studios and satellite exhibitions throughout the Bay Area.
‘Art of the African Diaspora’ originated from a salon for African American artists known as Colors of Black that was organized in 1989 by artist and professor Marie Johnson Calloway. In 1996 artists Jan Hart-Schuyers and Rae Louise Hayward established the exhibition The Art of Living Black at Richmond Art Center. Today the show is called Art of the African Diaspora to incorporate a broader vision and is run by a steering committee of participating artists.
From January 18 to March 18, 2023, at Main and West Galleries.
