ABOUT WILLIAM GRANT STILL ARTS CENTER EXHIBITIONS

The William Grant Still Arts Center hosts three exhibitions per year.

Recent past exhibitions include Deeds Not Words, about Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln in Spring 2012; A New Day: Nina Simone, in Spring 2011; Hell No! We Won’t Go!: 50 Years of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), in Fall 2010; Images, an exhibition of the Black LGBT Project Archive site-specific to the neighborhood and Los Angeles, in Fall 2011; and Dragon’s Flight, an exhibition of artwork by artists who are currently or formerly incarcerated, in Fall 2012. In the Spring, we annually host the African American Composers’ Series and in Winter, the Black Doll Show returns with a unique theme or topic.

Unless otherwise noted, exhibitions are curated or selected by The William Grant Still Arts Center. The Center works in collaboration with local artists, historians, knowledge-bearers, and curators. Panels, concerts, workshops, screenings, and other events take place as part of the exhibit.

Admission to all exhibits, panels and programs is generally free of charge. A minimal fee is sometimes charged for materials for art workshops and no one is turned away for lack of funds.
