Color throw and Bhangra dance to welcome spring
Celebrate the festival of colors right outside the Museum, on Fifth Street (weather permitting). Join in the fun by throwing colored powder in the air and on one another to celebrate the arrival of spring. (Bring a white T-shirt that can get covered with color!)

Artist workshop with Femi J. Johnson

A look back at the last fifty years in African American art, Colored Frames is an unflinching exploration of influences, inspirations, and experiences of black artists.
