We were unable to see the gallery as it never opened on Saturday June 22, 2013. The web site said it was open from 10-5. We arrived at around 11, it was not open. The sign on the door said Saturday and Sundays 1-5 pm. So, we went to Garden Brunch Cafe and had an amazing brunch, came back around... More

Artist Georgia O'Keefe donated her husband's art collection to Fisk University. Alfred Steiglitz, a noted photographer in his own right, had an art gallery in New York, Gallery 291. The artists, photographers, and sculptors shown and collected by Steiglitz rival that of the Phillips Collection. And this is just the beginning of the treasures found all around the campus with...

World class art in an intimate setting. Alfred Stieglitz iconic photographs pepper an amazing collection of art. It's as close as you'll ever get to a blue period Picasso painting. View Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Rivera, Reoir, Cezanne, Demuth and Arthur Dove to name a few. As if that wasn't enough descend the stairs to a stunning African-American permanent art collection. Go....
