Points of Juxtaposition
Points of Juxtaposition began in 2008 when a group of African-American artists came together for a dynamic presentation of art. Like the points of a compass, each artist represents their unique perspective of life in America and from an older African consciousness. The artists of Points of Juxtaposition direct their brushes, styles, camera lenses and digital tools at the social ills, beauty, and history of African Americans in this country.
