Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective

4th Annual Celebration of Black History Month
February 8, 2019 - February 21, 2019

To recognize the outstanding contributions to our community made by local African American artists, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum and the Multicultural Arts Alliance present Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective, a special art exhibit, opening February 8, 2019.

Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective features the works of four acclaimed local artists, including Riley Holloway, Barry King, and two exceptional art students from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts: Aisha Mpiana and Zen White.  A closing reception recognizing the artists will be held February 21.

Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective was conceptualized by Norman B. Lyons who was Vice President of Community Development for the Texas Rangers for many years. Passionate about art, he started the exhibit as a way to honor and recognize notable and student African American artists from the Dallas Fort Worth area during Black History month.  

Admission to the exhibit is free and does not require a ticket to the Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
