Details

This educational exhibition brings reproduction of artworks by William H. Johnson (1901-1970) from the collection of the Smithsonian Museum of Art Regarded, as one of the most influential American artists. Johnson's colorful images of children and musicians will provide a strong visual background for the children assisting summer camps at the Ali.

See it through the eyes of almost six-year-old Li'l Sis, from Johnson's children's book "Li'l Sis and Uncle Willie. The colorful story of Uncle Willie unfolds, a story that changes forever a little girl's perception of art and the world around her. The book is based on the life of African American artists.
