African American Life Depicted in Joint Exhibition



Birmingham, Alabama—The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) will unveil an exhibit depicting African American life by Rickey Harris and Evelyn Jackson. This exciting presentation will be housed in the David J. Vann Gallery beginning July 16, 2009

Jackson depicts the lives and times of African Americans by showing the lifestyles, joys, and challenges as she views them. The time frame spans from Africa to the present day. Harris explores the African American female in different shapes, colors, values and hues. The clothing, head gear and dresses give the paintings repetition and contrast. The joint exhibition will be on view through September 27, 2009.

 

BCRI features 12-15 changing exhibitions per year. The Vann Gallery primarily houses works from local artists including K-12 students. It is named for the former Mayor of Birmingham David Vann.

 

The mission of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is to promote civil and human rights worldwide through education. For more information, please visit the BCRI Web site at www.bcri.org or contact Angela Hall, Vice President of Publications and Special Projects, at (205) 328-9696, ext. 211.
