Event Description

Join the AAMI and local artist Jean Berry at 6:30pm as we present “Captured in Black and White: The Work of Jean Berry.” Jean Berry will speak about her process and inspiration. Ms. Berry examines the daily lives of ordinary people to communicate the deeper recognition of the contributions and influence of African Americans on modern culture. It is this interpretation that she translates into beautiful art using charcoal, black and white contrasting, and other found and recycled objects.



Jean Berry is an internationally recognized artist whose work has been displayed in Paris, Jamaica, and Belize, as well as numerous galleries throughout Iowa.
