Diasporal Rhythms

"Diasporal Rhythms seeks to build a passionate group of collectors engaged in actively collecting visual art created by contemporary artists of the African Diaspora as well as to expand the appreciation of those artists’ work."


The Diasporal Rhythms "Frame Drive" collected over 100 frames for the Art Department at King College Prep High School.  The school is creating a permanent art gallery at King that showcases the students’ creations.
