Feb 1-19; Feb 26
The African American Museum In Philadelphia
701 Arch Street
Philadelphi, PA 19106
February is your last chance to catch the museum’s powerful exhibition, which features a collection of more than 100 works from 48 artists born in the 19th & 20th centuries and explores the many meanings behind African American resilience. The exhibition explores the meaning of resilience: Is it perseverance? Is it staying power, or is it something much deeper? In any case, resilience embodies strength and humanity. The exhibition runs through February 19th. You also don’t want to miss the museum’s core permanent exhibit Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776 – 1876, allowing trailblazers like Octavius Catto and Richard Allen to tell their stories through the use of technology, photographs, videos and artifacts. The African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP) is the first institution built by a major U.S. city to preserve, interpret and exhibit the heritage and culture of African Americans.
