Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition III

Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition at the Center for Creative Education Produced by A.T.B Fine Artists & Designers LLC

The vision of this is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas) exhibition at the Center for Creative Education. 

This is the third installment of the exhibition.  Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country.  We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves.

The focus is to show the community that there is another aspect of art & culture in a community that many of the Palm Beach County community have yet to experience.  This year’s group includes artists who are originally from, reside or are represented in the state of Florida in one location here in Palm Beach County.  The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora.

We believe that with the partnership of CCE & A.T.B. the Diaspora will be another great success.
