Faith has long been a part of the story told and retold by African-American artists. The significance of spirituality and religion in black American life is the subject of a fascinating exhibit at the Anacostia Museum of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.
"Locating the Spirit: Religion and Spirituality in African-American Art" presents 115 works by 74 artists who reflect the many ways black artists have expressed and interpreted religion and spirituality. The show runs through Dec. 1.
The Anacostia Museum is at 1901 Fort Place in Washington. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. Admission is free. For information call 202-287-3307.
