The University of Virginia Art Museum presents a small survey of African-American fine and folk art from the 19th century to the present in an exhibition titled "Charlottesville Collects African-American Art," on display in the Graphics Gallery. Prints and photographs have been selected from the University of Virginia Art Museum's collection, as well as selected collections in the Charlottesville community. This exhibit will look into stylistic trends in addition to how the works are tied in historically to the wider field of American art, which is shown in works by artists including Whitfield Lovell, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Bill Traylor and Carrie Mae Weems.

The exhibit is co-curated by Andrea Douglas, curator of collections and exhibitions, and Carmenita Higgenbotham, assistant professor of American art in U.Va.'s McIntire Department of Art.
