From Lynn Museum/LynnArts –
“We are pleased to welcome “A Place for All People: Introducing the National Museum of African American History and Culture” from Saturday, September 24th-Saturday, November 12th.
Please join us on Saturday, September 24th at 10AM as we formally welcome this historic poster exhibit to the Lynn Museum.
A Place for All People celebrates the opening of the newest Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, September 24, 2016. A Place for All People is generously supported by the Smithsonian Institution’s Office of the Provost.
Based on the Smithsonian’s inaugural exhibitions exploring African American history, culture and community, the poster exhibit is accompanied by a broad range of programming ideas and educational resources to help venues connect to the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s opening events.
The African American story is one characterized by pain and glory, power and civility, enslavement and freedom. A Place for All People will evoke the power of oration and freedom stories, the brilliance of artistic achievement, and the soaring heights of cultural expression, philosophy, sports, and politics. In addition to profiling the long struggle to create the Museum, the building’s architectural design and its prominent location on the National Mall, the poster exhibit is a survey of the African American community’s powerful, deep and lasting contributions to the American story.”
