    The Kansas African American Museum recently unveiled its latest exhibit, “The Fine Art of Samella Lewis,” which will run through May 5. Dr. Samella S. Lewis has devoted her career to art, its history and the African-American artist’s relationship to it. She is an advocate, creating opportunities for under-served African-American artists to exhibit their work by curating art exhibits throughout the world. Lewis is also an artist, art educator and writer. This exhibition includes more than 50 works by Lewis that were inspired by African cultural heritage and executed beautifully in all drawing media: graphite, pen and ink, charcoal, acrylic, printmaking, oil and oil crayon.
