“Shifting Time: African American Artists 2020-2021” Book Signing with Contributing Artists

4:00 pm
5:30 pm
Woodmere Art Museum

SATURDAY, July 22 | 4:00-5:30PM | FREE

Please join Woodmere Art Museum and Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art for a conversation and book signing with several artists whose art, personal essays, poetry, and memorial tributes are featured in “Shifting Time: African American Artists 2020-2021.” Co-edited by Klare Scarborough and Berrisford Boothe, “Shifting Time” explores how contemporary Black artists responded to the emotional and cultural challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, social justice movements, and political upheaval during this critical period of turmoil and uncertainty. Petrucci Family Foundation Director Claudia Volpe will discuss how their mission of fostering a more complete understanding of African American art holds great promise for cross-cultural understanding and reconciliation, through a specific lens of the American experience.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear brief excerpts read by Scarborough and Boothe from “Shifting Time,” as well as have several contributing artists sign the book,  for which a LIMITED AMOUNT will be available at the event for a special price of $30.

Admission to this event is FREE; RSVP to:
