African American Artists Part 4 with Chichi Lovett (Wednesdays, April 28-June 16, 2021)
Wednesday, June 16 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, June 16, 2021
Explore the work of well known and lesser known African American artists and their predecessors with Chichi Lovett. She uses works of art created by African American artists to examine assumptions and initiate and welcome conversations regarding issues concerning race, class, culture, the art market and feminism (among other issues), that these pieces can instigate while learning to ‘read’ a piece from an artist’s perspective. We take time to look at this art and consider what it represents to you, the viewer and why. Learn about the context of the art and artists in their own time and in ours. Art pieces discussed in this class will be different from those discussed in the previous classes that Chichi offered during this past summer, fall and winter. There is no prerequisite for this class. All are most welcome.
Garnetta ‘Chichi’ Lovett is a native Brooklynite, visual artist (BFA), retired professor (Auburn University) and community arts advocate and organizer. She currently lives in Washington DC
