THE DRAWING PROJECT
Wilmer Jennings Gallery at Kenkeleba. Joe Overstreet, Corrine Jennings and Samuel C. Floyd founded Kenkeleba House in 1974 to support African culture. Kenkeleba began to work with experimental projects to assist African American, Caribbean, and African artists in developing and documenting their work. Projects include exhibitions and experiments with poetry, music, visual arts, and workshops in dance, theater, and children's programs. The name, Kenkeleba is derived from that of the Seh-Haw plant grown in West Africa, known for its spiritual, nutritional and healing values.
Medgar Evers College. Medgar Evers was established in 1970 as a senior college within The City University (CUNY) system with a mandate to meet the educational and social needs of the Central Brooklyn community by offering high-quality, professional, career-oriented undergraduate degree programs. The Charles Evans Innis Memorial Library, the exhibition space for the college, is a state-of-the-art facility that serves the needs of the student body and the community at large. The late Charles Evans Inniss was a Trustee of CUNY the Studio Museum in Harlem, and Director of Public Information and Development at the Brooklyn Public Library.
The Valentine Museum of Art at Philip Howard. VMoA, the custodian of Wimberley’s suite of drawings, is a privately-run institution that promotes the advancement of contemporary art by collecting, exhibiting, organizing related programs, and publishing single artist monographs and catalogs. In the ensuing years, VMoA’s intention is to expand its reach to locations in the Caribbean and on the African continent, thereby furthering the museum’s goal to share its collection with the global community.
