Goin' Bananas, a Josephine Baker art exhibit
On September 28, 2019, the first Josephine Baker fine art exhibit in history will take place at Harlem’s legendary Alhambra Ballroom in New York City. “Goin Bananas” features 100 original master works created by fine artist Michael Kilgore in the cubism, fauvism, abstract figurative, impressionism, neo-expressionism, collage art and line art techniques. Josephine Baker’s signature Bananas serve as a metaphorical inspiration that permeates throughout the exhibit, poised to be one of the most significant art events of the season. Goin Bananas is presented in collaboration with Cynthia McCoy, Art Director for the Exhibit. This is a must see, once in a lifetime event as the artworks will be “collectible” for lovers of Josephine Baker!
Kilgore’s work was presented by the California African American Museum in a twice held over exhibit that succeeded the Geoffrey Holder and Carmen de Lavallade exhibit.
