"Identity and Affirmation"

The Getty Foundation has awarded CSUN’s Institute of Arts and Media $80,000 to cull its rich collection of photographs and create an exhibition as part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, a regional initiative led by the J. Paul Getty Trust.

From October 2011 through March 2012, more than 60 cultural institutions throughout Southern California will come together to tell the story of the birth of the Los Angeles art scene.

At CSUN, the University Art Galleries will present Identity and Affirmation: Post War African-American Photography from Oct. 23 to Dec. 10, 2011. The exhibition will feature 125 images by more than a dozen artists who captured the vibrant development of the arts, music, politics, family and social life in the African-American community and Los Angeles at large

Muhammad Ali with Boy (ca. 1962), a photograph by Harry Adams, will be featured in the fall 2011 exhibition Identity and Affirmation at CSUN.
