The Friends of African American Art & Culture is a CMA membership affiliate group inclusive of all genders, ethnicities, and ages. We are brought together by our appreciation for the artistic and cultural contributions of African Americans.
No matter the medium, African-American art evokes a vibrant culture, an indomitable spirit and a strong sense of place. As an affiliate group of the Columbia Museum of Art, Friends of African American Art & Culture offers museum members a chance to step behind the canvas and discover what compels these artists to create the work they do.
