In conjunction with the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts special exhibition “The Blues and the Abstract Truth: Voices of African American Art,” the WCMFA will present a public interpretive panel discussion, “What is the Black Aesthetic?” The panel discussion will involve professional artists, art historians, art dealers, and collectors from Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region. The panel will examine the question of what constitutes a uniquely black aesthetic in relation to African American cultural heritage, history, philosophy, literature, and the arts.
