The Deborah Wainwright Alumni Exhibition
Beginning in 2022, The Deborah Wainwright Alumni Exhibition initiated a rotating yearly art show featuring an alumni artist of color, chosen by committee for a solo exhibit of their work. Of these alumni works, one piece is acquired and permanently included in the Deborah Wainwright Memorial Collections of African American Art and African Folk Art, honoring the legacy of Deborah Wainwright and expanding the Collections that were founded in her name.
These alumni artists are chosen to represent the craft and creativity of artists who have impacted the arts and the community after leaving CCBC. By creating this space, we hope to inspire current and future artists, provide an environment that centers community, and engage broader audiences with the vitality of new work by artists of color.
