The African American Cultural Center presents “In Retrospect: An Exhibition Series, Oral History and Archival Project” to commemorate the center’s 25th anniversary.

The exhibit is on display through Aug. 11 in 207 Addams Hall.

The second of three installments of “In Retrospect” features the works of five Chicago-area artists who previously exhibited at the African American Cultural Center as a part of the center’s long-running Visiting Artists Series from 1991 to 2012.

The summer presentation focuses on the theme of “environment,” with fine art photographs, mixed media and paintings by artists whose works have been exhibited widely throughout Chicago, the U.S. and abroad.

The African American Cultural Center is celebrating its 25th anniversary with an exhibition series, arts workshops, poetry readings, story circles, an archival research project and other activities that highlight historical and contemporary issues, events, programs and experiences that have furthered the center’s mission and purpose.

Admission is free and open to the public.
