Thelma Johnson Streat Showcase at Ampersand

Posted by Kamala Puligandla on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 9:55 AM

Thelma Johnson Streat is a renowned painter, dancer and educator from the Pacific Northwest who was known for promoting intercultural dialogue and understanding in the 1940s. Not only was she the first African-American woman to have a painting displayed in the MoMA, but she dedicated her life to showing people around the world the value of every culture's history and folk art forms. This was one badass lady!

From April 30 to May 17th, Ampersand Vintage (2916 NE Alberta) will be showcasing Streat's work. You can join them tonight for the opening reception from 6-10pm.
