The David C. Driskell Center is proud to present and preserve its collection of works by African American artists. The collection includes works by well known artists, such as Romare Bearden, David C. Driskell, Sam Gilliam, Jacob Lawrence, Keith Morrison, and Charles White. The Center's art collection will continue to grow through support from the Driskell Center Acquisition Fund. The Center's art collection is anchored by a gift of artworks from the David C. Driskell Collection of African American Art.
The David C. Driskell Center for the Study of the Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora at the University of Maryland, College Park, celebrates the legacy of David C.
