The Belger Arts Center is proud to present Art of the Americas, curated by Licia Clifton-James, Vice President of the Pan American Association of Kansas City and wife of Kansas City Mayor Sly James. The exhibition includes works from 28 of the 35 countries represented in the Organization of American States.
Presented in partnership with the Pan American Association of Kansas City, Art of the Americas includes selected works from the Organization of American States’ Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, DC.
According to Clifton-James, “It is my hope that by viewing these works of art representing various peoples and cultures, that we will see the uniqueness and beauty of each culture and realize there is a large hemisphere connected to us, worthy of our acknowledgement, collaboration, and respect.”
The exhibition’s opening coincides with the national Pan American Day.
