Amistad Center for Art and Culture at the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art [CT]
The center was first created in 1987 with the mission to purchase, protect, and provide public access to the Randolph Linsly Simpson Collection. The collection contains over 7,000 pieces of art, artifacts, and archives; and documents more than 300 years of African American History. A highlight of the collection is over 2,000 photographs which range from vivid images of slave life through some of the most memorable news photos of the Civil Rights movement.
The center offers exhibits and group tours. Reservations are required for all group visits. The site offers an events calendar, visitor information, information on the current and upcoming exhibits, and information regarding educational programs.
