Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze is celebrating Black History Month with an exploration into African ceramic art, "Diaspora of Design," presented by Dr. Edda Fields-Black, associate professor of history at Carnegie Mellon University.
The program takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Frick Art Museum, 7227 Reynolds St. The event is free and open to the public.
A specialist in early African history, Fields-Black will chronicle the migration of African ceramic design and technique from East Africa to the Indian Ocean Diaspora.
Complementing the lecture, a special, one-night-only display of African-inspired children’s art—created in collaboration with Frick community partners—reveals how this “diaspora of design” can reach all the way to our own neighborhoods.
