Next week, Face Off Theatre Company will perform the play The Colored Museum by George C. Wolfe as part of the week-long Black Arts Festival. In the satirical play, each monologue or vignette is an “exhibit” in the museum that portrays a different stereotype about African Americans. 


If you missed an artist's work last Art Hop at the Northside Association for Community Development, it’s unlikely that you saw it there the next day. Director Mattie Jordan-Woods says there are too many things going on at the center to leave the art up all month. 

But that’s all about to change, Jordan-Woods says.
