We really enjoyed our field trip to this important exhibit, which includes  drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures, and quilts by African American artists. It was inspiring to see such a  broad range of personal expression, and to talk about the way different artists used their art to celebrate beauty and to fight for justice.

The field trip is over, but you can still see the show!  You can read more about it  here.
