Friends of African and African American Art

The Friends of African & African American Art was founded to celebrate, stimulate, and encourage the study of works created by African and African American artists. Since 2003 members have enjoyed and supported a variety of informational programs at the Cleveland Museum of Art and at a variety of venues throughout northeast Ohio and beyond. We welcome you to join us in promoting our mission.
