Phenomenal Woman: Works by African American Artists

I want to present black people in their beauty and dignity for ourselves and others to understand and enjoy.

We are honored to exhibit the works of the eleven exceptionally talented African American women artists participating in Phenomenal Woman.  These artists embody the spirit of Elizabeth Catlett, the dean of African American women artists.  While each explores her unique artistic vision, their works are unquestionbly inforrmed by their experiences as Black Women.  Their works celebrate and illuminate a rich and complex legacy evident in the diversity of mediums and expression of the work.
