This includes two exhibitions which are a celebration of African America works on paper, including over 90 works of art. "The Kelley Collection," and "Eldzier Cortor: Theme and Variations." These exhibitions allow visitors to view master graphics spanning two centuries of African American art.
This collaboration between the curatorial department and the museum education department takes a fresh look at connections and contrasts in PAFA's collection of works created since 1960. Giant spiders, landscapes made of light, love letters to Philadelphia, and a star-spangled banner arrayed against writhing organic life are among the provocative images included.
