Black & Brown Faces: Paying Homage To Through June 19
Cincinnati Art Museum
Black & Brown Faces: Paying Homage To now showing at the Cincinnati Art Museum!
Free admission on Thursdays from 5–8 p.m.
Paloozanoire’s Black & Brown Faces will return to the Cincinnati Art Museum this spring in a new presentation titled Paying Homage To, on view from March 25 to June 19.
Rico Grant and Ray Ball, Co-Founders of Paloozanoire, organized the exhibition to build on the structure of the inaugural 2020 show, which commissioned 10 Black artists who depicted the emotional extremes of 2020, with the goal of facilitating a process of community healing from the upheaval of the year using art and connection as a catalyst.
This year, Black & Brown Faces: Paying Homage To expands to include 15 Midwestern artists of color, each recognizing 15 sung and unsung Cincinnati leaders, all individuals of color driving change in their community, disrupting the norm, and lifting others through their work. Each artist will create their interpretation of a portrait to pay homage to these honorees.
Black & Brown Faces: Paying Homage To is free to attend, and open to the public in the Schiff Gallery at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
Black & Brown Faces is supported by our business and philanthropic community, with sponsors and partners, including Procter & Gamble, Kroger, ArtsWave, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Scripps, JP Morgan Chase, Frost Brown Todd, First Financial Bank, Paycor, Ulmer.
