Big reveal: 'Hidden No More' at Mosaic Templars

Posted By on Wed, Oct 4, 2017 at 4:02 PM


Works by 11 African-American artists whose works are in the Creativity Arkansas collection of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, 501 W. Ninth St., will be revealed at a reception Thursday, Oct. 5, when the museum opens "Hidden No More."

The reception, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., will feature refreshments, live music and a chance to meet some of the featured artists, all of whom have ties to Arkansas: Brandon Maddox, LaToya Hobbs, Joshua Asante, Angela Davis Johnson, Ariston Jacks, Danny Campbell, Rex DeLoney, Cicely Trice, Donnell Williams, Sondra Strong and Danny Broadway.

Creativity Arkansas "reveals the hidden history of how African Americans have shaped the narrative of Arkansas throughout the state’s history," the museum's press release said.

The Creativity Arkansas collection began in 2008. By 2011, the collection had 42 works, according to an Eye Candy post. The collection is funded by a grant from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.
