Huntingdon’s Black History Month Art Exhibit Features the Work of Frank Hardy
Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Black Student Union invites the public to enjoy the annual Black History Month Art Exhibit on the Huntingdon College campus. This year’s exhibit will feature the work of artist and storyteller Frank Hardy. The opening reception will be held Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. in the College’s Seay Twins Art Gallery. The event is free and open to the public. Masks are required at all Huntingdon indoor events.
A native of Selma, Alabama, and a self-taught artist, Mr. Hardy’s bold, colorful paintings give voice to the current and historic significance of civil rights, human rights, and African Americans’ contributions to this nation. Through his work, Mr. Hardy shares his passion for life, music, all forms of art, and fitness. Mr. Hardy is also the author of the fantasy fiction book, Rise of the Emancipator (2017).
Dr. Chris Clark, associate vice president for human resources and risk management and assistant professor of accounting, advises the Huntingdon Black Student Union. “I know that Mr. Hardy has been described as a Renaissance man,” said Dr. Clark. “Certainly, his work reflects strength, beauty, and an ability to step into the lives of his subjects. I hope everyone will come and meet Mr. Hardy and hear his story.”
Huntingdon’s Seay Twins Art Gallery is located at 3140 Jim Wilson Loop East on the Huntingdon campus. Parking is available in the Narrow Lane Road parking lot at the College’s George Gibbs Tennis Center entrance.
Mr. Hardy’s work will be on display throughout the month of February.
