Join us in partnership with the Laiya St. Clair & Dyana Williams for Ron St. Clair's exhibit in our gallery. 

The centerpiece of the 34th Celebration of Black Arts Festival is the month-long exhibition, ‘Do You Hear What I See’ featuring rarely seen photographs of black music icons from by photographer C. Ron St. Clair. The showcase will include several candid photos of some of the most influential musicians in the 20th century, including Berry Gordon, Duke Ellington, Harry Belafonte, Patti LaBelle, just to name a few; and each piece will be available to purchase throughout the duration of the exhibition.
