February Art & Music Reception

Mansa Mussa

Main Library – Join us for a Black History Month celebration on Saturday, Feb. 8 1:30-3:30, featuring Evidence of Evolution, the collage art of Mansa K. Mussa. The artist will give a talk at 2:30, and music will be provided by The James White Band, performing their incomparable, riveting jazz. Free and open to the public.

Evidence of Evolution traces Mussa’s work from 1978 to the present, and includes a range of techniques including traditional cut and paste, grids, mixed media, digital photograms, and photo collages.  They are suffused with color, detail and the things he loves the most: people, dancers, artists, jazz musicians, cities, and architecture.
