Black Creativity and its signature Juried Art Exhibition is open now through April 17 at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.

MSI has hosted the annual celebration for more than 50 years. This exhibition is included with Museum entry.

The longest-running exhibit of African American art in the nation, the Black Creativity Juried Art Exhibition showcases nearly 200 works by professional artists from across the nation as well as local student artists. Returning this year is an online art gallery, providing even more opportunity for people to view these artworks if they are unable to visit the Museum in person.

“Showcasing the groundbreaking achievements of African Americans gives young people of color the opportunity to see themselves represented in the arts and sciences,” said Chevy Humphrey, MSI president and CEO. “Black Creativity celebrates artists, creators and leaders who contribute to their community and help inspire interest in innovation through STEAM.”
