Art Exhibition in the Western Addition

About This Item

KPIX News report by Ed Arnow from September 15, 1968 featuring an art exhibition in San Francisco's Western Addition neighborhood. Includes scenes from an interview with one organizer who comments: "The purpose of this kind of exhibit is to give an opportunity to artists who don't have an easy time showing their art a chance to display in the communities from which they  come and where they work and where they live and where people know them".  The question is also posed: "How different is black art from white art?" Includes silent views of the art on display and exhibition space full of visitors. Supporting text and metadata updated for the web in April 2020 by Lisa Ann Nikkel. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
