Join us for an exciting conversation with exhibiting artists Firelei Báez, Mimi Plange, and Lina Iris Viktor, who will provide insight into how they fashion their lives through their art.

We are especially grateful for the generosity of supporters like you who help the Museum thrive and grow. For 20 years the Museum has:
  • honored its unique mission to inspire and enrich the Spelman community and the general public primarily through art by women of the African Diaspora.
  • consistently offered programs like Artists Talk that make the works on view come alive for our audiences. 
  • made strategic acquisitions that keep meaningful works of art in Atlanta. 
Giving Tuesday is today, November 29, 2016. Please consider supporting the Museum by making a tax-deductible gift  to the Museum. Every contribution makes an impact. Please select the amount that is right for you and designate Museum of Fine Art. Thank you.
The critics have spoken. See AFRICA FORECAST: Fashioning Contemporary Life before it closes on December 3, 2016.
"The brightness of the space alludes to the optimism inherent in an exhibition of this scope — one that addresses grim history and confronts its future with boldness."
Shantay Robinson, ArtsATL 

By complicating and expanding the often-unheard narratives of this international community of artists, Africa Forecast communicates the historical and political potency of self-fashioning through and beyond the frame of the garment.
