Women of Vision Exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art Hall of Sculpture
Milli Mickle, member of the Dr. Edna B Mckenzie ASALH branch, is exhibiting a painting in the Women of Visions exhibit called the “Future Visions” at the Carnegie Museum. The exhibit runs from May 28 to June 12. The Carnegie Museum is located at 4400 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh Pa. 15213.
Women of Visions, Inc. is a historic collective of African American women visual artists in Pittsburgh and a contemporary organization of artists supporting the community and each other through exhibitions, education, mentorship, and professional development.
Note this is the first time in Carnegie’s 126 year history that there has ever been an exhibit by a collective of Black female artists. These women are among the best painters in the world and we have a rare opportunity to avail ourselves of their magnificent art.
A public and free celebration for the exhibition, Future Vision: Women of Visions, is scheduled for June 2 from 6-9 PM in the Carnegie Museum of Art Hall of Sculpture.
Milli Mickle is a professor of English at Penn State University, Greater Allegheny Campus located in McKeesport Pa.
