  Emmy-nominated actress CCH Pounder introduces her personal exhibition QUEEN at The Wright Museum

DETROIT - On January 28, 2020, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History opened the doors to a new exhibit, QUEEN: From the Collection of CCH Pounder, featuring sculptures, paintings and mixed media works by such luminaries as Harmonia Rosales, Betye and Alison Saar, and Kehinde Wiley!

Emmy-nominated NCIS: New Orleans actress CCH Pounder has made a name for herself in more than just one discipline: her talents extend to the world of art collecting, too. Pounder selected pieces from her collection that focused on black women through the lenses of feminine beauty, identity and power.

"It opens up a conversation about art and women," Sarah Clunis, gallery director of Xavier University said of the exhibit. "For black women to be able to enter a museum and have a conversation about fine art and to be able to see themselves in it, that's important."

“We are extremely excited to have this much anticipated collection at the Charles H. Wright Museum,” says Neil Barclay, CEO of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

Located at 315 East Warren Avenue in Midtown Detroit, the exhibition will be on display from January 28 through April 5, 2020. Details for public programming in support of the exhibition have been released.
