We just created the exhibit identity for 40 Acres: The Promise of a Black Pastoral. The show is opening to the Public on February 13, 2016 at The Amistad Center for Art & Culture in Hartford, CT.
Sculptures and images as a narrative form depicting the historical relationship of African Americans and agriculture and looking closely at works for a meditation upon the promise of 40 acres, a refrain that linked Black politics and agricultural expectations for nearly a century.
The Amistad Center for Art & Culture owns and showcases a vital collection of nearly 7,000 items of art, artifacts and popular culture objects that document the experience, expressions and history of people of African descent in America.
Founded in 1987, The Center's collection is displayed at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut.
