African American Artists with Chichi Lovett: Session 5 (Wed. Aug. 4-Sept. 22, 2021)
Wednesday, August 4 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, September 22, 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 to initiate and welcome conversations regarding issues concerning race, class, culture, the art market and womanism/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 has offered during past sessions. There are no prerequisites for this class.
Attend with an open and curious mind and a gentle heart. 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
