The MACC celebrates Black History with the illustrations of the noted Tennessee artist Michael J. McBride. His exhibition features more than 60 of his illustrations for children’s books. Works in this collection celebrate the Gullah-Geechee language and culture of the Carolinas, and they also pay tribute to the great African-American artist Helen LaFrance. McBride is a master of figurative art. His virtuosity in painting people comes through in his sensitive renderings of a child and his grandmother.

McBride will be on hand for the opening on Feb. 17, 2024 to sign the following books, which include his illustrations:
‘S’ is for Sweetgrass: The ABCs of Gullah-Geechee by Dr. Triba Gray Davis
