The NAAAAASG conference Navigating the Mainstream: Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future will serve as a forum to discuss both the successes and challenges of the constantly evolving African and African-American arts field. Discussions will examine best practices for collecting, interpreting, presenting, and preserving cultural heritage in mainstream museums. A wide variety of perspectives and topical conversations will be considered in presentations by distinguished scholars and internationally renowned artists; engaging panel discussions; and cultural tours of St. Louis arts institutions, private collections, regional entertainment and cuisine.
Significantly, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Saint Louis Art Museum Romare Bearden Graduate Minority Museum Fellowship. Established in 1992, this fellowship aims to prepare minority graduate students for work in museums and cultural institutions. Several fellows have continued on to successful careers in the arts, thereby contributing to the rich legacy of African-American scholarship, creativity, and education.
