Fayetteville Museum of Art
January 17 - March 8, 2009
Premiere Party January 16th: 6 - 8pm.
African American art is a broad term describing the visual arts of the American black community. Explore their innovative and experimental works influenced by various cultural traditions, including those of Africa, Europe, and the Americas. This exhibition will compare works by contemporary African American artists Eric McRay and Chandra Cox to utilitarian African objects that are part of the FMoA's Lewis Pate collection.
The MoA is proud to reach out to new audiences with its selection of emerging and talented young musicians from across the state. The next opening, January 16, 2009 will feature Chapel Hill band Physics of Meaning. When he's not contributing to St. Vincent, the Polyphonic Spree, or John Vanderslice's band, multi-instrumentalist Daniel Hart serves as the leader and chief songwriter for the Physics of Meaning. A classically trained violinist, Hart spent his youth practicing Bach sonatas and performing in local plays; he then discovered an enthusiasm for playwriting during college. The Physics of Meaning combined those two passions, mixing chamber pop orchestration with lyrical narratives and character sketches.
