For the first time ever, DCCAH teams up with Howard University and Black Artists of DC for a very special 2010 Porter Colloquium.
This event will honor master artists Elizabeth Catlett, Dr. Floyd Coleman, and Dr. Jeff Donaldson; as well as art collector, educator, and cultural philanthropist Dr. Peggy Cooper-Cafritz.
Named for the pioneer art historian and professor James A. Porter, the Porter Colloquium is the leading forum for scholars, artists, curators, and individuals in the field of African American art and visual culture.
To support the continuation of his legacy, DCCAH joins Black Artists of DC and Howard University to host our monthly Art Salon. This unique event will celebrate an exhibition of works by the esteemed honorees and bring together scholars, collectors, administartors, and supporters of DC’s creative communities. A special address will be given by DCCAH Chair Dr. Anne Ashmore-Hudson, Commissioner Marvin Bowser, Black Artists of DC Chairman Akili Anderson, and Dr. Gwendolyn Everett, the Howard University Art Department Chair.
