OSilas Gallery at Concordia College New York is pleased to announce Young, Gifted, and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art, curated by Antwaun Sargent and Matt Wycoff. This exhibition will be on view through December 7, 2019. 

This exhibition of work produced by artists of African descent is drawn exclusively from the highly regarded private collection of Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi. Although many works in the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection have been lent to museums over the years, Young, Gifted, and Black is the first stand-alone public exhibition curated from this exceptional collection.  Young, Gifted, and Black showcases works, in a variety of mediums, by emerging artists, alongside works by established artists who have paved the way for the younger generation. 

The exhibition is free and open to the public.  Gallery hours are Tues/Wed/Fri 12-5 pm; Thurs 12-7 pm; Sat 2-5 pm; Sunday and Monday by appointment only. To arrange a group tour of Young, Gifted, and Black, please contact Executive Director Elizabeth Vranka at 914.337.9300 x2173 or elizabeth.vranka@concordia-ny.edu.
