Powerful Voices: Africa and the Americas

African-American and Caribbean art made an increasingly vital contribution to the art. Decorative arts such as ceramics, furniture, and quilts are fine art - sculpture, painting, and photography. This captive art produced cultural diversity and synthesis of cultures that mirrors American society as a whole. Join The Art Of Interpretation under the umbrella of Howard University Club of Washington, DC, at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery February 7 - 28 to celebrate the rich history of arts in African Diaspora.
