Black Creativity Art Gallery Walk


Juried Art Exhibition

Black Creativity’s annual Juried Art exhibition is one of the country’s oldest African-American art shows. The exhibition typically features over 100 works of original art by both youth and professional artists of African descent. We will meet and take a look at some of these works by local and national artists of African descent.

If you'd like to see other exhibits at the museum I encourage you to come to the museum earlier and meet the group at the ticket booth at the East Entrance at 11:00am. Admission is $15.00 for Chicago residents and $18.00 for non residents. It should take about an hour or so to look at the pieces. We will be eating lunch at Pizza Capri in Hyde Park after the gallery walk.

    Had a good time. Did not see everyone as some got there and went through the gallery and moved on. I will make more of an effort to attend more functions on the weekends.
