Building on the Legacy: African American Art from the Permanent Collection
Virtual Exhibition
Muscarelle Museum of Art

Created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first African American students in residence at William & Mary, “Building on the Legacy: African American Art from the Permanent Collection” was part of a yearlong program of special events during the 2017–2018 academic year, which spoke to themes of parity and desegregation.

The original exhibition, held at the Muscarelle Museum of Art (September 2, 2017 – January 14, 2018), featured works that encompassed a variety of media, styles and eras, exemplifying the plurality of vision among these accomplished artists.
