Journal of the Month: IRAAA

IRAAA

In honor of African American History month, we’re featuring the International Review of African American Art (IRAAA) as the journal of the month for February. IRAAA is the only periodical spanning the history of African American art from early and modern to contemporary. The journal is published by Hampton University Museum on a quarterly basis. Founded in 1868, the Museum is the oldest African American museum in the United States featuring collections with over 9,000 objects including African American fine arts, traditional African, Native American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Island, and Asian art.

Volume 24, no. 3b is a special issue of the journal published in conjunction with the Dianne Whitfield-Locke and Carnell Locke Collection: Building on Tradition exhibition at the Hampton University Museum. The issue acts like an exhibition catalog and features essays and full-color reproductions. Stop by the library to view this beautiful journal, and browse the back issues on display!
