Friends of African American Art & Culture presents Modern Rhythms
Honor a major milestone with the Friends of African American Art & Culture (FAAAC) and meet the CMA’s new curator, Michael Neumeister. The CMA affinity group celebrates Modern Rhythms, a new gallery featuring works on paper from the CMA Collection and showcasing FAAAC’s first-ever art acquisition — Oliver Lee Jackson’s Monotype IV (2006) — recently gifted to the museum. The evening begins with a cocktail reception hour in The Loft that includes the smooth jazz stylings of saxophonist Dante Lewis, light appetizers, and a cash bar. Neumeister then discusses the works newly on view in the light-sensitive gallery. Afterwards, attendees are encouraged to visit the Modern Rhythms gallery and to enjoy self-guided tours of works on view by Black artists.
