Opening Reception: Saturday, February 21 from 6pm to 8pm

The exhibition is on view through April 25, 2015.

Transforming Anew: Perspectives of Black Men features the work of three dynamic artists presenting their interpretations of the black male image by artists Chanel Compton, David Ibata, and Nehemiah Dixon.

These images of black men are varied in their medium, presentation, and context, creating a collection of stories that mirror the wide-ranging experiences of the men themselves. The title of the exhibition is derived from a poem by poet Nikky Finney entitled At War With Ourselves, which explores the experience of Black men and boys throughout American history. The poem was created as a part of the At War With Ourselves Project created by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland.

PGAAMCC is located at 4519 Rhode Island Avenue, North Brentwood, MD.
