The exhibition is on view from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, February 8th to April 5th, 2013. Free and open to the public
These events pay tribute to Langston Hughes; poet, novelist, playwright, and leading voice of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s.
As curator Katro Storm describes it, the show will be layered and include collaborations because Hughes liked to work collaboratively.
