Museum Exhibition: Black American Portraits

February 8 – June 30, 2023

Spring 2022 Hours: Wednesday – Saturday | 12-5 p.m.

Black American Portraits travels to Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, Featuring New Acquisitions including a New Work by Calida Rawles

Following its debut at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 2021, the group exhibition "Black American Portraits" travels to Atlanta’s Spelman College Museum of Fine Art. Co-curated by Spelman College Museum of Fine Art’s executive director Liz Andrews and Tate’s Britton Family curator-at-large Christine Y. Kim (both formerly of LACMA), the exhibition reframes portraiture to center Black American subjects, sitters and spaces – this time placing Black women portrait artists center stage. 

New to the exhibition at Spelman College Museum of Fine Art will be four acquisitions: a new painting by Calida Rawles - who will celebrate her 25th anniversary as a Spelman College alumna in 2023, two works by Augusta Savage, and a photograph of Spelman Alumna Stacey Abrams by Sheila Pree Bright.
