From These Shores presents the images and biographies of an array of Africans, who over time and geography, have and are still contributing to the advancement of humankind in a multitude of fields. When creating this array, we looked beyond the names and achievements that typically come to our tongues and in lands many do not often associate with Africa.
We also sought depictions equally as diverse. The images include photographs and paintings created just for this exhibit. From black and white photos to colorful acrylics and air brush portraits, the images also reflect the diversity of the various artists.
