Artists in the House: Collecting Art of the African Diaspora

Has the production of art from the African Diaspora moved beyond “Black Art?” What works are most collected by institutions and private collectors? Who determines the intellectual or aesthetic value of a work of art?

Watch our short recap of the recent Allentown Art Museum discussion with panelists Danny Simmons, collector, curator, artist, and activist; Eric Edwards, collector of African art and artifacts; and Halima Taha, Ph.D.

Only two more weekends to experience for yourself the thought-provoking ideas and powerful emotions visitors say they've felt upon seeing our special exhibition Carrie Mae Weems: Strategies of Engagement, a carefully curated display of more than one hundred photographs, videos, and mixed-media works from a MacArthur Fellow the New York Times recently called “perhaps our greatest living photographer.”

BHANGRA PA Dance Club Footage Rehearsal @Allentown Art Museum (Saara Arts)

Join the youth from The Pennsylvania Bhangra Dance Club in this inpromptu interview and behind the scenes view of an actual dress rehearsal at the Allentown Art Museum. Vindya Chari of Saara Arts hosted this wonderful event, which was also sponsored by the Art museum.

We also have the powder throwing sequence as well as a recap of the Bhangra Dance performance held on Third Thursdays.
Dholi can refer to any one of a number of similar types of double-headed drum widely used, with regional variations, throughout the Indian subcontinent. Its range of distribution in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan primarily includes northern areas such as the Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Kashmir, Sindh, Assam Valley, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Konkan, Goa, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. The range stretches westward as far as eastern Afghanistan. A related instrument is the dholak or dholki.

Someone who plays the dhol is known as dholi (Punjabi: ਢੋਲੀ) or dhuliya (Assamese: ঢুলীয়া).

There’s art being created on the Arts Walk! A Lehigh graduate, student of one of our favorite people (Berrisford Boothe), is part of the effort creating a large mural across from the parking garage. Stroll by! Then come see us for the final days of our “Retirement Sale.”

Thank you to everyone who came out for Third Thursday at the Allentown Art Museum.

We held a Bhangra dance and color throw to welcome spring by the Pennsylvania Bhangra Club and then celebrated the festival of colors right outside the Museum, on Fifth Street. Participants threw colored powder in the air and on one another to celebrate the arrival of spring!

We also hosted students dancers enrolled in the Muhlenberg College Theatre & Dance program who engaged with works of art throughout the Museum through individually choreographed dances that highlighted the dynamic relationship between the performing and visual arts.

Missed this Thursday? That's okay! We hold special events every week at the Allentown Art Museum.

Arte en Espanol is a free interactive story session for kids ages 2-5 and their caregivers. The program takes place every Wednesday at 11 a.m. at the Allentown Art Museum. Every week we read a story in Spanish, discuss artworks from our collection, and make a project to take home. This program is presented in partnership with PBS and the Spanish Language Immersion Center.
