New exhibition open at the Taubman

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The Taubman Museum opened a new exhibition, called “Reclamation: Pan-African Works” from the Beth Rudin DeWoody collection.

It features around 100 pieces of very well-known artists, and mixed mediums, highlighting the global migration of people from around the world – and it’s meant to start a discussion about migration, history, race, and art.

This type of collection is something they say you’d have to pay to see in much bigger cities.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the taubman with a comprehensive collection of works of art that you could see in many metropolitan areas,” said Cindy Peterson, Executive Director of the Taubman.

It runs through early September, and is free to the public.
