All are invited to a free reception to celebrate and view the Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection of Abstract Art exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation and organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and The Baltimore Museum of Art.
This nationally-traveling exhibition on view in the Snite Museum through Saturday, December 15 consists of 51 works by Modern and contemporary artists of African descent, many of whom were historically overlooked by art collectors, critics, scholars, galleries, and museums.
Light refreshments compliments of the Friends of the Snite Museum will be served, a cash bar will be available, and at about 6:00 p.m. the art collectors Pamela Joyner and Fred Giuffrida will talk briefly about their collection and the exhibition.
We recommend guests park after 4:30 p.m. in the Bulla Road lots and use the campus shuttle bus service to the Museum to avoid hockey game traffic congestion in the south lots.
