Carver Interpretive Museum and WMA honor African American art

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) The G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum and Wiregrass Museum of Art, (WMA) have teamed up to honor African American culture. Monday night, (June 19th) a reception will be held for their "Red, White, Blue, and Black All Over" exhibition.

The free event will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the WMA. There will be food and rinks, and the artists will be present for viewers to ask questions. Artists can also win cash prizes for their work which people can vote on during the night. The exhibition highlights eleven regional and local artists, and nineteen pieces of art that share the concept of being black in America.

"The pieces that are in their are not my views, their not the Carver's views, their not the Wiregrass Museum of Art's views," said Precious Freeman, the Executive Director of the Carver. "Those pieces are the views of the individual person, and so there's this excitement of being able to hear a person's unfiltered voice, their unfiltered uncensored perspective."

The "Red, White, Blue, and Black All Over" exhibition will be view-able at the WMA until July 1st.
