Visualizing Legacy: American and African American Art Highlights from the Permanent Collection offers a glimpse of the richness that comprises the Howard University permanent collection. These masterpieces illustrate the breadth and scope of our cultural legacy while providing a rich resource for the study of African American and American art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As caretakers of this ethos, we are proud to continue the tradition and celebrate our artistic legacy.
