  2. A Taste of the Beautiful: African Impact on American Culture

    September 6, 2019, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM @ Hampton University Museum

    “A Taste for the Beautiful” showcases the works of numerous artists that have attended Hampton University, and have been influenced directly and indirectly by African culture. This show includes works by guest artists Kwabena Ampfo-Anti, Chinedu Okala, and Solomon Isekeije, who provide powerful visual statements that relate to HUMA’s African Gallery and Dr. William H. Shepherd’s extensive collection of Kuba artifacts. These artists work in a variety of styles and media; this show aims to provide them long overdue recognition.

  3. Legacy and Stories

    September 6, 2019, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Charles Taylor Visual Arts Center - Main Gallery

    Legacy and Stories is an exhibition of Hampton artists who use their creative medium to present narratives, accounts, and anecdotes which are historical, biographical, or autobiographical in nature. Some works in this exhibition are very personal while others tell more universal stories – some familiar, some new. From artist John J. Moore’s carved wood sculpture and dioramas depicting famous and infamous scenes that shaped African American history and culture to artist Anthony Hurt and artist, art educator, and musician Jackie Merritt who both bring their own unique stories and journeys into their creative expression. The Opening Reception will feature music and hands-on storytelling activities for the public. Legacy and Stories is a very special and important exhibition to begin our 2019-2020 Visual Arts Center Season.
