The acquisition of the Evans-Tibbs Collection notably expanded the Gallery’s holdings of African American art. This overview will highlight objects in the special installation and provide background about the collector and dealer, Thurlow Evans Tibbs, Jr., (1952–1997). This talk is part of the Gallery’s observance of African American History Month.
