A Celebration of Black Art in Durham honors the vibrant contemporary art scene in Durham, North Carolina.

The exhibit is centered around the visual art of Malcolm Goff, while including photographs by Derrick Beasley, Christa Bethelmy, Rodrigo Dorfman, and Frank Myers. Each artist brings a different style and vantage point to the perspectve, while remaining committed to preserving and documenting the ever-present Black art scene in Durham, North Carolina. 

The collaborative exhibit on display in Duke University’s Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture includes photographs and visual art highlighting three Black-centered events in Durham: Black August in the Park, The Art of Cool Festival, and The Durham Civil Rights Mural. Given the presence of Durham in Black American history, each of the events does a unique job of celebrating the rich traditions, culture, and beauty that makes Durham our home!

Join us for a artist talk/reception on Tuesday, April 19th at 6pm in the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture. Light refreshments provided.
