The Museum presents exhibitions that honor its mission to emphasize art by women of the African Diaspora. The Museum presents two exhibitions each year that include solo, thematic, group, and period-specific projects. Many exhibitions are original projects that the Museum staff organizes. Others are nationally touring exhibitions that are organized by other institutions. All exhibitions feature nationally and internationally regarded artists who demonstrate exceptional promise and consistently push the boundaries of their artistic practice. The Museum’s exhibitions examine topics that complement the academic curriculum. Additionally, they expand art offerings in Atlanta, the region and beyond.
