Event description

Description

The Afro Frontal perspective plaits the spirit of African culture with the soul of African American society; an experience of humanities frontier as seen through the Neo African today.

For one evening only, Osengwa & The Monroe Trust will present the Afro Frontal exhibition in celebration of the Grand Opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The exhibition will feature illustrations, paintings and photography by a collective of artists of African descent.

The collection will be auctioned online beginning Thursday, November 17 at 9:00 a.m. through Friday, November 18 at 9:00 p.m. A portion of auction proceeds will go to two organisations we love – Socially Africa, in support of the Art for a Cause initiative, and HSC Home Care, for the Huggable Hope Campaign.
