Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer Dobet Gnahoré has garnered a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music today. As a child, Gnahoré was trained in the music and dance traditions of the Bété people by her father, a well-known performer in West Africa. Hailed by critics as Africa’s leading star on the rise, her extraordinary talents position her to set the course for the genre. On stage, her voice and charisma have immense audience appeal. In 2010, she shared an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance with India Arie at the 52nd Grammy Awards.

Taking Place: Selections from the Permanent Collection

For centuries artists have rendered landscapes—both real and imagined—to consider issues of history, belonging, disenfranchisement, and more. Landscapes can bear witness to stories from the past and offer powerful lessons in the present. Taking Place: Selections from the Permanent Collection includes photographs and paintings that depict urban scenes, rural landscapes, and visions of the African diaspora, all of which speak to notions of history and home among African Americans. ——————- Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, Sunday 11:00…
