June 24-Sept. 25 Becoming featuring artist Valerie Gillespie. Becoming is an aesthetic exploration of the truth and illusion behind the often times unfortunate actions that stem from human nature. Our skin is what binds us physically, yet separates us emotionally. Through the use of pigment and skin tone, a visual representation of the pain of being the other is portrayed in each piece through the lens of an African American mother. In strength and with ones emotions guarded, pain is often times overlooked or ignored. The masks we wear daily contribute to the seclusion and loneliness of what it feels like to be Black in America. Becoming is a visual journey of the bold and beautiful elements that define African American women. It is this beauty that often creates the divide, but illuminates the magic that we possess. See the exhibit at the African American Museum in Fair Park. Information: aamdallas.org.

June 26-Sept. 11 Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. is at the African American Museum in Fair Park.

Men of Change profiles revolutionary men - Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, W.E.B. Du Bois, Kendrick Lamar, Lebron James and more - who have altered the history and culture of this country. Seven categories - Storytellers, Myth-Breakers, Fathering, Community, Imagining, Catalysts and Loving - present different views of men most think they know. Men of Change was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and made possible through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.
