Indelible: Historic African-American Photographs and Artifacts from the Collection of Robert E. Green

When: Fri., June 5, 5-7 p.m., Tuesdays, 12-8 p.m., Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-5 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Continues through Aug. 15 2015

The camera may have democratized photography by bringing the power of portraiture to the people, but because of America's troubling racial history there are comparatively few historical photographs of minorities. But that doesn't mean they're not out there -- artist Robert E. Green seeks them out to add to his growing collection. Indelible: Historic African-American Photographs and Artifacts from the Collection of Robert E. Green is an exhibition of images Green has obtained, and many of them were made here in St. Louis. Indelible opens with a free reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 5, at the Sheldon (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-533-9900 or www.thesheldon.org). The exhibit remains up through Saturday, August 15, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday.
