AFRO FRONTAL: ART EXHIBIT AND AUCTION – 11/18/16 6:30pm

The Afro Frontal perspective plaits the spirit of African culture with the soul of African American society; an experience of humanities frontier as seen through the Neo African today.
For one evening only, Osengwa & The Monroe Trust will present the Afro Frontal exhibition in celebration of the Grand Opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The exhibition will feature illustrations, paintings and photography by a collective of artists of African descent.
