One of our amazing teachers, Christine Griffin, helped to bring a wonderful exhibit to Kirby Hall for Black History Month! The exhibit was called Black Art – Ancestral Legacy: The African Impulse in African American Art. The exhibit was held in Kirby Hall’s library for the entire month of February and was open to all students, faculty and parents. Coffee and breakfast were provided to all of the Kirby Hall families, which were invited to come visit the exhibit on February 28.
The exhibit was made possible by a grant from Humanities Texas and Kirby Hall School is so grateful for this wonderful opportunity!
“This past summer, I took a course on Pre-AP Strategies at UT, and during the course of the week, we had a presentation from Humanities Texas. It was here that I learned about Humanities Texas’s wide variety of exhibits available to the public. As a parent and educator, I believe it’s important for school communities to commemorate Black History Month, and I thought the Black Art exhibit would be a great way to honor the contributions of African Americans to the art world. It was also fun to see the children’s reactions to the artwork!”
