AFRICOBRA in CHICAGO Exhibit opens Friday, June 28, 2013 from 6 to 9 pm at new Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago.
From the very beginning, AFRICOBRA's uniquely vivid and powerful images have made a indelible statement on the arts esthetic of the Black Arts Movement in Chicago. 
The  memorable style of the group incorporates Africentric concepts and ideas using light, energy and color. Many of AFRICOBRA's artists, juxtapose African figurative patterns and motifs into complex abstract layers and rhythms of color.

The African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists originated its beginnings in Bronzeville in the 1960's and 70's starting with the Wall of Respect on 43rd St

Learn more about this exhibit which is spread across three art galleries in Chicago this summer including The South Side Community Arts Center, The Logan Center for the Arts and The DuSable Museum of African American History.
