An extraordinary art exhibition celebrating Black History month will be on view at the Noyes Cultural Art Center from February 7 through March 5. Artist Jevoid Simmons has meticulously traced his family history in Alabama beginning in the early 20th century.
The paintings, that accompany a narrative, depict provocative events that tell the story of A Family’s Journey North. Simmons, a long time Evanston resident, is Director of Employee Relations at the Art Institute of Chicago.
The exhibition is curated by Harvey Pranian, owner of Harvey Art & Antiques and founder of Young Evanston Artists (YEA!). Most recently Harvey, in cooperation with the City of Evanston, curated an exhibition at the Noyes Cultural Art Center of art work by artists with mental and physical disabilities entitled, Expressions from the Heart. Harvey lives and works in Evanston and is active in the arts community.
