BROOKLYN (NY). Brooklyn Museum of Art.
Contemporary Afro-American Arts.
September 29-October 31, 1968.
Group exhibition 126 works by artists. The Brooklyn Museum Archives also records the following information: "September 1968: The Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, the parent body of The Brooklyn Museum, Botanic Garden, Children's Museum and the Academy of Music, announces the opening of a new Community Gallery, Sunday, September 29 at 1 p.m., in The Brooklyn Museum. This is the first time that a community gallery has been established within the walls of a major cultural institution for the express purpose of encouraging and stimulating creativity in the arts. Henri Ghent, who is also Assistant Director of the Institute, will be the new gallery’s director. The post was made possible last June by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts...The inaugural exhibition will be comprised of works by black artists from the Bedford Stuyvesant area, under the sponsorship of the Federated Institute of Cultural Enrichment (FICE), whose desire to exhibit in the Museum provided the original impetus for the gallery. The exhibition of Contemporary Afro-American Arts will include painting, sculpture, photography, tapestry, films and Audio-Visual, and will be shown for four weeks, terminating October 31." Reviews and mention: Alexander Keneas, "The Brooklyn Museum's New Community Gallery Focuses on Black America" NYT, September 30, 1968:53; New York Amsterdam News, October 12, 1968:(24); Diana David, "An Institute Reaches Out. The Brooklyn Museum and the Community," Harvard Art Review 3 (Winter 1968-69):(33)-38, discussion of Ghent, the new gallery and this exhibition; photo of David Butler with his sculpture. Editor's Note: The images of the original exhibition checklist, available on the Brooklyn Museum Archives website, makes clear that the exhibition was entirely organized by F.I.C.E. (the federated institute of cultural enrichment), a black artists organization in Brooklyn, not curated by Henri Ghent, hence the large number of misspellings in the names of the artists in the only extant list of participants. The checklist, created by F.I.C.E., appears to have been created from an attempt to read the artists' scribbled signatures from the works or from cards submitted with the works. This has made it impossible to identify all of the participants in this significant historic exhibition. The following (with names corrected wherever possible) were included in the exhibition: Tejumola Adetutu, Staiwo Balogun, Carol Bateman, Falcon Beazer, Carol Blank, Kay Brown, Alga Carr, Kitty Chavis, Charles Creary, Dwight E. Dates, David Elder, Tom Feelings, Raymond Gibson, Melvin Green, Hugh Harrell, Gaylord Hassan, Karl Holman, Bill Howell, Onnie Millar, Jessie Mosley, Otto Neals, Ademola Olugebefola, Joe Overstreet, Mantaque Pollars (?), Oko Pyatt, Abdul Rahman, Bobby Richardson, David F. Samuel, Frank Smith, George Wilson, artists listed only as Bosley, Jukulo, Torment, Torrence, Henery/Hennery, Rafiet, and also white photographer/painter Builder Levy who was an important civil rights community activist/organizer in Brooklyn at the time.) 3 pp. checklist in Brooklyn Museum Archives
