This event is cancelled. Peggy Cooper Cafritz sadly passed away on February 18. Our thoughts are with her family and friends. Read more about Peggy’s life and legacy here.

Cafritz, an activist and philanthropist, has been one of the leading figures in the D.C. arts community since the mid-1970s. In addition to co-founding the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, chairing the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities from 1979 to 1987, and serving as Vice Chair of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities under Clinton, she amassed one of the most important collections of work by artists of color in the country. Tragically, more than three hundred of these pieces were destroyed in a fire in 2009. This volume features two hundred of the lost works by artists including Kara Walker, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Yinka Shonibare, Nick Cave, Kehinde Wiley, Barkley L. Hendricks, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems, along with pieces Cafritz has collected since.
