Of Kings and Queens
January 10 – February 25
Special Reception: Thursday, February 7, 5:30-7:30 pm
The titles “king” and “queen” are terms of shared racial acknowledgment and endearment. They hearken to the great cultures of Africa and the vast technologies and innovations that across the world, we benefit from, but very seldom acknowledge as originating in Africa. This exhibit will shine a light on a narrative that is missing; contributions in technology, science, culture, music, engineering, agriculture, textiles, conservation, and art, have enriched our lives and shaped our culture.
This exhibit is part of First Thursday Gallery Hop sponsored by the Yonkers Gallery Group, an alliance of galleries including Blue Door Art Center, Friends of Philipse Manor Hall, Urban Studio Unbound (US+U), and Yonkers Riverfront Library. Receive 10% off food and drinks at local restaurants during First Thursday Gallery Hop. Stop by any gallery for the code.
