Labor Day weekend is coming up and one way to celebrate is at the California African American Museum. They will be hosting Caribfest at CAAM! on Sunday, September 1. Learn about the Caribbean through music, costumes, and food. The event will take place between 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. with room to visit the ongoing exhibitions.
Diverted Destruction 6 coincides with the exhibition held at The Loft and features objects that would usually find its way to landfills. Local African American Artists will also make appearances.
Another exhibition on display is The Legacy of The Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Company: More Than A Business. Murals created by Charles Alston, Hale Woodruff and others once occupied the building, making their collection one of the largest of corporate-owned African American art in the United States.
Finally, Things that Cannot Be Seen Any Other Way: The Art of Manuel Mendive explores the artists paintings that were influenced by Lukumi/Yoruba traditions.
