On Wednesday, May 1 in Mechanical Hall Gallery at 4:00 pm, join Museums Graduate Research Assistant and Ph.D. candidate Anne Cross to further explore the exhibition “Collecting as Activism: African American Art and the Legacy of Paul R. Jones.”

A collector and philanthropist, Paul R. Jones (1928-2010) began collecting art in the 1960s, focusing on acquiring works by African American and African diaspora artists—artists, at the time, who were often marginalized and excluded from major museum collections. Through artworks from his collection, the exhibition invites visitors to ask questions surrounding diversity, inclusion and visibility in art museums, as well as the role of collectors in supporting underrepresented artists.​
