Black History Month Exhibition

Rosie by Ben Hamburger

Migration has been a defining characteristic of the black experience in the United States since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to the American colonies in the early 1600s. But the early 20th century marked a new and important phase in migration as unprecedented numbers of African Americans moved from the rural South to the urban North in search of a better life. Multiple waves of this “Great Migration” would continue during the course of the 20th century into the 21st century as blacks within the United States as well as black immigrants moved to and within this country. This exhibit explores the factors spurring black migration and immigration as well as the resulting changes in society on the national, regional, and local levels. This exhibit is curated by the M-NCPPC Black History Program.

Jill Tanenbaum and Cathy Abramson Tanenbaum and Abramson showcase glassworks and paintings that feature the colors, shapes, and energy found in and around urban settings. One can feel the pulse of a city in the work of both of these women. Tanenbaum’s glass pieces are often inspired by the people, experiences, and visions she observes in urban environments at home and abroad. She likes to “quilt” together many images and techniques that when fused tell a story. Abramson’s paintings focus on people in neighborhoods in transition. “A single moment in time” comes to mind when one views her work, as each image appears to freeze-frame a whir of urban activity and offers the viewer a chance to reflect on that moment’s juxtaposition with and application to other locations, cultures, and activities.
