  • Michael D. Harris, "Penance for Oshun."

In conjunction with the exhibition "AfriCOBRA NOW: Works on Paper," artists Kevin Cole, Michael D. Harris and Moyo Okediji will attend a reception tonight (Friday, Sept. 9) at Hearne Fine Art, 5:30-8 p.m., and give a tour and talks Saturday at 10:30 a.m. 

Cole will also sign his book "Kevin Cole: Straight from the Soul," and Harris will sign his book "Colored Pictures: Race and Visual Representation."

Artists in the AfriCOBRA collective, founded in 1968 in Chicago, work within what it defines as an African-American aesthetic. The first project of the collective, then known as the Organization of Black American Culture, was the "Wall of Respect" mural in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago. The group was later known as COBRA, the Coalition of Black Revolutionary Artists. Today, the acronym stands for African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists.

Saturday's discussion will be led by Dr. Pamela Russ, dean of the division of education at Tougaloo College in Jackson, Miss.,  professor emerita of Multicultural Education at California State University
 
Hearne is at 1001 Wright Ave.
