Black Dimensions in Art Celebrates 40 Years

SARATOGA SPRINGS – In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Black Dimensions in Art, Inc. has teamed with Saratoga Arts to present “Many Rivers,” a showcase of established and emerging artists from the United States, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.

Since 1975, Black Dimensions in Art, Inc. (BDA) has been dedicated to educating the public about artists of the African Diaspora and their unique contributions to the American art scene, to encourage African-American youth in the practice, application, and appreciation of the arts.

“Many Rivers” inspires reflections of mythical, metaphorical or natural rivers that lead to new lands and discoveries. It embraces collective experiences that unite us with one another, and the pathways of life’s triumphs and tribulations.

The opening reception will take place Saturday, October 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Saratoga Arts Center, located at 320 Broadway. Before the reception, at 5:30 p.m., there will be an open discussion with the curators of the exhibit. The event is sponsored by Druthers Brewing Company, which will provide food and craft beer at the reception.

The exhibit will run from October 3 until November 7. For more information, visit saratoga-arts.org.
