Black History Month in Indianapolis

Throughout the month of February, several events are taking place around Indianapolis in celebration of Black History Month. Here are a few of our favorites.

Meet the Artists

Now – March 23, Central Library

In its 27th year, this annual art showcase at Central Library features works from 18 different locally prominent African-American artists. As always, a variety of mediums will be represented, with each piece reflecting the theme of “Art With Passion.”


Art & Soul
Now – February 27, Indianapolis Artsgarden

Now commemorating its 20th anniversary, Art & Soul is an annual celebration of African-American art and artists from Indiana that takes place at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. From dance to jazz to spoken word, the month-long schedule of events offers a little bit of something for everyone.


The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Celebration of Black History
February 9, Hilbert Circle Theatre

This free concert from the ISO honors the significant impact of African-American musicians on the cultural life of Indianapolis and the nation. This year's performance will feature violinist Adé Williams, the 2012 first place laureate of the Junior Division of the Sphinx Competition.


Sonya Clark: From Hair to There – Artist Talk
February 11, The Alexander Hotel

At the Alexander Hotel, you can find 60 works of art curated entirely by the Indianapolis Museum of Art. One of these works is Sonya Clark’s portrait of Civil Rights activist and local business pioneer Madame C. J. Walker made entirely out of combs. Hear Clark discuss issues of race, identity and heritage at this free event.


SPEAK.
February 25, Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center

This spoken word program will delve into the history of Indy’s black community. Three local artists (Gabrielle Patterson, Theon Lee and Januarie York) will all be sharing pieces that shed light on the history and stories of Indianapolis.
