Harlem Black Arts Exhibit

“Weusi Revisited: 2010 showcases  the historically seminal work of the Weusi Collective. Founded in 1965, the Harlem-based Weusi (”way-oo-see,” which means Blackness in Swahili) are considered progenitors of the Black Arts Movement and were among the first artists to make African imagery a central part of their work.” – Dwyer Cultural Center Website (www.dwyercc.org)

If you haven’t seen it yet and you have a free afternoon this summer, go visit this amazing exhibit. I have been several times and find it to be both beautiful and powerful. Aside from the afrocentric colorful works, there is also an accompanying video featuring interviews with the individual artists who explain why and how they create their paintings. Also, it’s free! – just a suggested donation from those that can.
