On view in the CAC’s Ferrari Gallery this fall is the exhibition, Memories & Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art. This exhibition presents 67 carefully curated pieces from the collection of an Atlanta-based couple, who gladly gave up many ordinary comforts to live with extraordinary works of art. Their collection includes works by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence, Gordon Parks, and Alma Thomas, spanning almost a century. The couple, however, does not search exclusively for well-known artists; they focus on the more meaningful task of gathering and preserving a range of creative approaches representing the Black image and experience. The exhibition includes different mediums, subjects, and styles by artists who are strikingly diverse but unified in their use of cultural narratives.
Memories & Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art is organized and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
The CAC is offering teachers and students the opportunity to see these museum-quality works in person. Trained docents will be available to lead tours Tuesdays through Fridays from October 10 through December 21, 2023.
