Jones Collection, one of the world’s oldest, largest and most complete collections of works by African-American artists.
The exhibit opening event will start at 11 a.m. with a lecture entitled “The Peculiar Mission of the Paul R. Jones Collection” presented by Dr. Amalia Amaki, the curator of the Jones collection. Following the lecture, visitors can participate in the “Create a Masterpiece” youth art workshop from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., where they will have an opportunity to create their own work of art in the style of the artists featured in the exhibit.
