We kicked off our month-long celebration of Black History Month here at the Dallas Museum of Art with the First Tuesdays celebration this week. Our theme was Superheroes and was inspired by the Jacob Lawrence: The Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture exhibition.We made superhero gadgets in the Art Studio (I love that this little guy came dressed in his Santa outfit)…. …looked at some of the superheroes of our collection… …played drums, sang, and danced with Afrikan griot Melody “AFI” Bell.
Whew! What a fun day! We hope you’ll join us for the Art from Africa to America Family Celebration on February 27th!
