New exhibition celebrating 40 years of the AfriCOBRA Artist Collective. AfriCOBRA: Liberated Images will feature works by 10 members of the collective. AfriCOBRA (“African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists”) began in Chicago in 1968 as a group of artists who sought to capture the vibrancy and spirit of African American urban life through elements found in traditional African art. Through the years, the group has continued to add new members.

AfriCOBRA: Liberated Images features recent works in a variety of two-and-three-dimensional media. Exhibiting artists include Akili Ron Anderson, Kevin Cole, Adger Cowans, Murry DePillars, Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), Michael D. Harris, Napoleon Jones-Henderson, James Phillips, Frank Smith and Nelson Stevens. Jones-Henderson, who is a founding member of the group, serves as exhibition administrator for AfriCOBRA.
