The exhibition "30 Americans," a collection of artwork by some of the most distinguished African-American artists coming to the Arkansas Arts Center, will be the subject of a talk by Arts Center director Todd Herman at noon Thursday, April 9, in the Clinton School's Sturgis Hall. The show opens that day to members, April 10 to the public.

The show, organized by the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, features work by the well-known, like Robert Colescott and Jean-Michel Basquiat, and the emerging, like Kehinde and Shinique Smith. The show, which includes works created over four decades, provides an understanding of cultural identity as well as displaying terrific art. 

Artist Hank Willis Thomas will speak at the members' opening at 6 p.m. at the Arts Center.
