Friends of African American Arts, or FAAA, is a member group of people across genders, ethnicities, and ages brought together by their appreciation of the artistic and cultural contributions of African Americans. Art can be instrumental in shaping the tone and nature of intercultural relations. FAAA has a diverse membership, which enjoys social and cultural activities that allow participants to expand their personal networks while experiencing the remarkable cultural landscape the Southeast has to offer. By participating in FAAA events, you are adding value to your Telfair Museums experience.

Telfair Museums’ Friends of African American Arts was formed in 2007 with a mandate to “raise public awareness in and to promote development and understanding of art by African Americans.” Over the years, FAAA has evolved into a vibrant community of artists, collectors and art enthusiasts. This current exhibition features work in a variety of media – painting, sculpture, photography and mixed media – by 27 current FAAA members. This exhibition presents a taste of our talented artist community and the public is invited to seek out more information on their work through accompanying artists statements and links.
