25th Annual African American Art Exhibition

Actors Theatre of Louisville is probably not the first place you think of to see visual art, but it has been home to the African American Art Exhibition since the 1990s. Hung in the Roanne H. Victor Gallery (named after gallery founder and longtime director who died in 2017), the annual juried show is now one of the oldest, most important exhibitions of its kind. Entries come from throughout the country and are juried by mixed media artist Kevin Cole. Look for the exhibition each February in celebration of Black History Month.
