Museum Hours

Chromatic Elegance: The Works of Tasha Beckwith is a celebration of African American men and women in all their glory. This exhibition presents a tapestry of talent, color, and creativity, paying homage to the strength, beauty, and diversity within the African American community.

At the heart of this exhibition are the strong Black men and women who take center stage in each portrait. These artworks are not just images; they are affirmations of identity, power, and resilience. Each brushstroke or pixel speaks volumes about the pride and strength within the African American community.

Through this collection, the artist showcases the multifaceted beauty of African American life, transcending stereotypes and acknowledging the vibrancy and individuality of each subject. As you explore these artworks, we invite you to reflect on the strength and beauty that radiates from the faces and stories of these incredible individuals.
