Our Stories: African American Prints and Drawings opens today at the Cleveland Museum of Art. With a range of styles and themes, the works are dated from the 1930s until today. They focus on the realities of struggling with poverty and the need for freedom, human dignity and social justice; they offer a very candid portrayal of daily life. This collection of works offers a timeless perspective, with images of both past and present intertwining to form a larger, more complex picture of the issues we face today. Artists include Romare Bearden, Kara Walker and Dexter Davis. This exhibition is free and runs until May 18 (Trenholme).
