SCENE/ CURRENT
Current and upcoming exhibitions. 
 
35 YEARS IN PRINT AND STILL EVOLVING 
To commemorate the history of the IRAAA, we take a look at the larger, mid-1970s art scene out of which the journal emerged, and the individuals and institutions that helped to pave  its cross-country reach.
 
THREE WOMEN OF BALTIMORE  
The inter-related careers of three women make them a driving force on the Baltimore art scene: Leslie King, director of the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Center for Race and Culture; Michelle Wikinson, director of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Art; and Myrtis Bedolla, director of Galerie Myrtis.  Also coverage of recent exhibitions in Baltimore and King-Hammond’s Global Africa Project.
 
BY DESIGN/THE ART OF EVERYDAY USE 
Covering the design disciplines with profiles of Arem Duplessis, design director of the New York Times Magazines;  Marlene Barnett, designer of carpeting that rises to the level of fine art; and graphic designer Sylvia Harris.
 
SCENE/CURRENT + YEAR IN REVIEW
The African American art scene is burgeoning with exhibitions and other activities.  This section presents a detailed cross-section of that activity, including  a year in review  survey with commentary by art historian Margaret Vendryes.
 
CAREERS
News about visual arts professionals and scholars.
 
PHOTOGRAPHY
The photography of Teenie Harris who covered Pittsburgh’s African American Hill District from the late 1930s to the 1970s.  The visual narrative qualities of Harris’ photography make it the captivating subject of a new book and exhibition.
 
PRINTMAKING
Willie Cole’s venture into printmaking uses the techniques of the medium to brilliantly exemplify Yoruban mythology.
 
BOOKS
Reviews of new books on art historian/curator Kellie Jones; David Hammons and the assemblage school of  Southern California in the 1960s and ‘70s;  the African American cultural watershed in Chicago in the 1930s and ‘40s, and the modernist expression of William H. Johnson.
 
REMEMBRANCE
Tribute to Edward L. Loper (1916-2011),  who was known as “the prophet of color” because of his vibrant canvases that transformed what he saw and tried to change how his viewers saw.
