The new exhibit: “Emma Amos: Color Odyssey,” is on view through September 12th at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, the first retrospective of this important artist’s work., featuring more than 60 bold mixed-media paintings by Amos, an African American woman, who challenged society with her art on race, gender, and privilege.

A companion exhibition, “Call & Response: Collecting African American Art,” running through November 28, explores Munson-Williams’ efforts to enhance its collection with works by Black artists over the past 30 years. 

To tell us more we welcome Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Museum of Art Mary Murray.
