The African diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of peoples from Africa, predominantly to the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, among other areas around the globe.
Collaboration started as a showcase of artists, presented in homes, businesses and other alternative spaces allowing artwork to be viewed by clients in a realistic or unusual environment.
The art, ranging from $850 to $10,000, will be available for sale.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday. The Art Gallery at Eissey Campus is located on the first floor of the BB building, 3160 PGA Blvd.
