The Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s ambitious I See Africa: Perceptions, Imaginings, and Realities, on view through June 5, presents views of Africa that go beyond the sensationalism of news photos to “articulate the realities of contemporary Africa and Africans,” say organizers.
Curator Barbara Gamboa has elicited contributions from the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Museum Center, as well as contemporary works relating to Africa or African-Americans by Ohio artists.
An African Culture Fest, open at no charge, is planned for 2-6 p.m. May 2, with live music and dance and a buffet dinner of foods native to Africa.
