Beginning in the 1880s and spanning through today, the exhibition Black Artists of Oregon captures the Black diasporic experiences particular to the Pacific Northwest with 69 artists and over 200 objects. In the words of guest curator Intisar Abioto, it is “a heralding of Black presence, interchange, influence, and impact.” Please join us for a kitchen table conversation with curators Intisar Abioto and Grace Kook-Anderson and two artists and educators whose artwork is in the exhibition: Bobby Fouther and Kayin Talton Davis.
Deepen your knowledge of Black Artists of Oregon, make connections to your teaching, and find community with educators from around the metro region.
