What is multicultural art? View the exhibition Through African Eyes and explore this idea as you see how African artists blend their unique cultures with influences of Europe and America to create a broad and diverse body of artwork. Use various two and three-dimensional studio processes to create a mixed media artwork that embodies the term multicultural. A box lunch is included.
