“Remember, Rise, Revitalize”

A Fine Art Juried Show

Celebrating the Writers, Artists and the Arts of the Harlem Renaissance

October 4, 2022– January 6, 2023

Opening Reception: Friday, October 7, 2022
5:30-7:30 PM
Pacific Grove Library
550 Central Avenue
Pacific Grove, CA


The Harlem Renaissance was a turning point in Black cultural history. African American artists gained more control of their own narrative that provided them a place in Western high culture. It had an enormous impact on Black consciousness worldwide and helped usher in the civil rights movement.


During the Harlem Renaissance libraries were instrumental as places of democracy and social justice and art gives voice to inner life, expressing feelings people don’t always want to shout into megaphones. Celebrate with us our ability to rise above adversity, racism, pandemics and our own limitations to soar on wings of poetry, jazz, and art.
