Mosaic Templars Cultural Center to open new exhibit, ‘Hidden No More,’ Oct. 5

Mosaic Templars Cultural Center - Monday, September 25, 2017

Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) will unveil the 2017 Creativity Arkansas collection at an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 5.

The Creativity Arkansas pieces will be part of MTCC’s newest exhibit, “Hidden No More,” which reveals the hidden history of how African Americans have shaped the narrative of Arkansas throughout the state’s history.

The exhibit comprises two parts: this year’s additions to the Creativity Arkansas collection as well as other pieces from the museum’s permanent collection.

This year’s Creativity Arkansas artists are Brandon Maddox, LaToya Hobbs, Joshua Asante, Angela Davis Johnson, Ariston Jacks, Danny Campbell, Rex DeLoney, Cicely Trice, Donnell Williams, Sondra Strong and Danny Broadway.

A free opening reception will be 6-8 p.m. Oct. 5 and will feature refreshments, live music and a chance to meet many of the featured artists.

“Hidden No More” will be on display through the end of the year.

The Creativity Arkansas collection began in 2008 and showcases artwork created by artists who are native to or currently reside in Arkansas and whose work depicts the African American experience in the state. The collection celebrates the history of the state through vivid works in a variety of media. Consistent with the vision of MTCC, the collection preserves and documents Arkansas history through the visual arts.

Artwork acquired for Creativity Arkansas is used for MTCC’s educational programming and periodically serves as inspiration for new public programs. The entire collection is funded through a grant from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.

MTCC is located at 501 W. Ninth St. in Little Rock. For more information, please visit MosaicTemplarsCenter.com or call (501) 683-3593.
