Put pen to paper -- it might seem old-fashioned -- but shows you care! The inside of the cards are blank so you can include personalized your message. And use the sturdy storage box for keepsakes or post you receive in return.
For more than a century, the museum has been home to exceptional art by African Americans. Today our collection includes over 1,400 examples of fine and decorative art made by 250 artists of African descent. These numbers grow every year.
These works reflect a wide range of creative practices, ideas, and backgrounds. African American art is not an easily defined category, but a rich gathering of individual expressions by people who share the legacy of diaspora, or displacement from an ancestral land.
African American art is also deeply intertwined with the history of race in the United States—from colonial enslavement, to the civil rights movement, to today. These works are far more than a group of personal statements about identity or recorded moments in history. They have power, beauty, and meaning that extend beyond categorization to achieve timeless, universal appeal.
