I got to attend an event at the Fisk Galleries put on by Urbaanite. The event was great’ we got to explore the gallery and learn the history behind all of the different pieces. Here is a pic of Jamaal telling us all about a piece that he created!Truly a great experience!

The librarian shared so many wonderful stories with me about how African American families that moved from the south used to send money back home to help out their families. Beautiful art work in the library

Fisk University itself is a MUST see! You can feel the history of the space as the first HBCU. This art gallery hosts black artists to dive deeper into the black stories and share historical perspectives many folks may not know.

Nice gallery. Actually did some research before and after visiting the gallery. I did volunteer work for them as well. I assisted in tours and desk management. I even briefly visited the Carl Van Vechten art gallery while attending Fisk University for my History of Fisk class course. We, on the class trip, walked across campus to the gallery but when we went in we went down the stairs which unveiled a new section of the gallery that had a different variety of options expanding from 1890 to present day!! I love love love the art they have available.

Small but excellent gallery that displays African American artists. A historically significant gallery with a multimillion dollar collection. A lot of the collection is borrowed by much larger galleries in the US.

This gallery is famous for its collection donated by Edward Steichen. However, this collection is now on loan to Crystal Bridges and is not on display. There is little else to recommend this museum.

I made s special trip to Nashville just to visit this museum. It was on Saturday, late morning/early afternoon. The doors were locked, no notes posted. So, I was very disappointed!
