DESCRIPTION

Join us in celebrating our newest exhibit, “AfriCOBRA: Art and Impact,” which honors the Chicago artist group, AfriCOBRA (African Commune Of Bad Relevant Artists). The founding members, Jeff Donaldson, Jae Jarrell, Wadsworth Jarrell, Barbara Jones-Hogu, and Gerald Williams, came together in 1968 on the South Side of Chicago and had a lasting impact on peers and subsequent generations of artists, writers, actors, dancers, and musicians.

AFRICOBRA in Chicago is co-presented by three South Side institutions: The South Side Community Arts Center, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago.
