Many black American artists have sought inspiration in ancestral African visual arts, music and dance. Beyond this, African-American painters and sculptors-urban and rural, folk and militant-are struggling toward self-definition. A touring exhibition, which opened at the Dallas Museum of Art where Wardlaw is a curator, explored these themes with stunning impact and is re-created here. A book for all art lovers' libraries and those who are artists themselves. 2 people found this helpful.

African-American art is a broad term describing the visual arts of the American black community (African Americans). Influenced by various cultural traditions, including those of Africa, Europe and the Americas, traditional African-American art forms include the range of plastic arts, from basket weaving, pottery, and quilting to woodcarving and painting. The earliest evidence of African-American art in the United States is the work of skilled craftsmen slaves from New England.
