Two shows that I really want to see:
Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art will be on view at The Studio
Museum in Harlem until March 8, 2015. So see it now!

This fall, The Studio Museum in Harlem will debut
Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art, an exhibition exploring the ways
contemporary artists use Ebony and Jet magazines as a resource and as inspiration in their
practices. Published by Johnson Publishing Company for over sixty years, both magazines are
cultural touchstones for many African Americans and often represent a commonality between people
of diverse backgrounds.
