A Celebration of Movement Inspired by Ernie Barnes

Friday, January 25, 2019, 7–9 p.m.

As the opening event for the 18th Annual African American Cultural Celebration, join us for an evening of music, art, and dance inspired by the life and work of artist Ernie Barnes. On the football field and in his art, Ernie Barnes demonstrated that movement is part of life—whether to the sounds of a crowd cheering, music playing, or an internal rhythm—we all experience time and space in ways that reflect our sense of self and our shared community. Ernie Barnes continues to inspire movement. Enjoy original choreography created and performed by North Carolina dance companies, as inspired by artist Ernie Barnes.
