HERNDON EXHIBITIONS/Black History: A Work In Progress

February 18 - March 28

Black History: A Work In Progress Poster Image

Herndon Gallery invites you to witness
Black History: A Work in Progress
An exploration and exhibition highlighting Black History and its constant influence on our lives.

February 18 – March 28, 2022
Gallery Hours Tuesday through Saturday 1 pm – 4 pm

The frame, for lack of a better word, is in recognizing and celebrating black history and black folk’s contributions across different aspects of the culture, and how those contributions have come from this area specifically. Contributions from the Antioch community, contributions by organizations that are part of the community of Yellow Springs, contributions from scholars, visual artists, performance artists, musicians, students from the college to students from the schools in town.

The common connection is in the intersectional nature of our relationships to each other in this part of Ohio, and the recognition that the eclectic mix of materials in the exhibition further demonstrate that black history is our history, it appears everywhere, and that by celebrating its importance transcends the idea that one month a year provides adequate representation. This practice only makes it easy for people to compartmentalize the work that is ongoing 24 hours of the day, 365 days of the year.
