We are pleased to announce the opening of The Kinsey Collection exhibition at the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Curated by the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution, the exhibition titled The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey; Where Art and History Intersect, will be on display from this Friday October 15th until May 7th, 2011 and is the one of the few personal collections to ever be shown at the prestigious museum. We urge you to visit the exhibit during its stay at the Smithsonian, and to bring your families, friends and colleagues.
The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey; Where Art and History Intersect, contains more than 100 original and authentic historical artifacts, documents and works of art that tell a story of the African American experience from the 1600’s to the present. The collection and companion coffee table book has been recognized to be of great cultural significance and was recently adopted by the Florida Department of Education as part of their statewide African American history curriculum for grades K -12.
We invite you join us in celebrating the incredible contributions that African Americans have made and continue to make. We look forward to seeing you!
