This special concert draws inspiration from selected works of African American art at the NC Museum of Art as well as two powerful exhibitions, Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design and Michael Richards: Are You Down?. There will be a diverse mix of music including African American spirituals, blues and R&B. After the performance, attendees can visit the exhibitions and take a self-guided tour of African American art at the Museum. Admission is $17.
Tenor Corey Leak started his professional career as a member of the prestigious Boys Choir of Harlem and has performed with the North Carolina Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and Boston Symphony, as well as for NC Governors Perdue and Cooper.
Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design - Academy Award–winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter has created pieces for films such as Black Panther, Malcom X, Selma, and Do the Right Thing. Her art adds dimensionality, flair, and culture to the characters she envisions, giving power to the incredible actors who wear her designs.
Michael Richards: Are You Down? - Michael Richards' visionary sculptures and drawings engage Blackness, flight, diaspora, spirituality, police brutality, and monuments in his largest retrospective to date.
