Event description
Celebrate Black History Month with vibrant paintings by Senegalese artist Ibou Ndoye

About this Event

Exhibition Dates: 1/21 – 3/3, 2020

Greenville Art Walk: 2/2 (Artist Talk at 2:30 p.m., Painting Workshop at 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.)

Ibou Ndoye’s paintings are populated with the “neighbors” of his homeland Senegal, as well as his adopted homes, Hoboken and Jersey City. They wrestle, play music, and dress in colorful garments, for example. During his recent visit to Senegal, after eighteen years of living in the United States, he rediscovered his artistic and cultural roots and expresses them through dynamic forms and colors.

This exhibition is part of NJCU Black History Month Celebration and co-sponsored by Black Alumni, Administrator, Faculty, Staff and Student Organization (BAAFSSO).
