This exhibition, the second offering from our series, In the Hands of African American Collectors, offers a roadmap to the cultural journey and transformation faced by these collectors as they embrace and acquire art and artifacts. Within the context of their own history and the past that speaks to them, we discover how the Kinseys are changed and nurtured by what they chose to collect. From painful to see slave owner’s documents to brilliant, fiery expressions in sculpture to private glimpses into thoughts of the ancestors, the Kinsey Collection reflects our own rich cultural heritage which they have been driven to capture, inspire and sustain for future generations. Heartfelt appreciation to lead sponsors Northern Trust and Toyota Motor Sales, and to supporting sponsors Washington Mutual, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo Bank,US Banc Corp, and Southern California Edison. This exhibition is currently on national tour.
