The Albuquerque Museum is hosting about 100 paintings, sculptures and photographs by 43 African-American artists from the premier collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Museum educator Jessica Coles tells us more than half of the objects in the African-American Art in the 20th Century exhibit are being shown for the first time.

Gospel music has long been an influence on the African american community and its artists, which is why gospel is tying in to the new exhibit at the Albuquerque museum. Rosalind Jones, organizer of the Evening of Gospel Music, joins us along with some of the performers in the Jan. 16 event.
