The History Fort Lauderdale museum kicked off Black History Month on Feb. 4 with the debut of a new exhibition chockfull of works by and about Black artists.
“Black Art, Black Artists Shaping Tomorrow’s History” will feature works for show and sale from Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) students and instructors through Feb. 29th.
Artwork including paintings, drawings, digital compositions and more will sell for $150. All profits go towards funding the Dillard Center for the Arts and their students.
“I know that there are often not a lot of opportunities for [students] to show in a professional space,” said AP Art teacher Celestin Joseph. “Making sure the kids have a place to showcase their talent and their work [is important].”
