In the Library: The Evans-Tibbs Archive of African American Art
From: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Thurlow Evans Tibbs, Jr. was a proud DC resident and an art appraiser, collector, broker and dealer, and this National Gallery of Art exhibit honors his life and tremendous contributions. Tibbs grew up immersed in art and was an advocate and preserver of African American works, showcasing exhibits in the District and making a large donation to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, which is now a vital component of the Gallerys holdings by African American artists. In this display, youll see exhibition pamphlets, correspondence, records, photographs and other artifacts that document Tibbs and his family.
