This exhibition, curated by English Professor Jenny Spinner and Anne Gutherman ’24, features artworks created by Black Philadelphia-area artists from the 1930s to the present. It includes pieces from the permanent collection as well as works on loan. The artists’ works highlight the celebrations, exchanges, and sacrifices of communion in its multifaceted meanings. They also invite audiences to consider what they give and receive as members of communities.
