African American artist Peter Bradley will discuss his experience in the art world, the key role he played in a United States-South African art exchange program, and the political climate that surrounded the exchange at a brown bag lecture 12:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at Lafayette’s David A. Portlock Black Cultural Center. He also will attend an artist’s reception at the center 5-7 p.m. that evening.

Free and open to the public, the events are part of Lafayette’s annual celebration of Black History Month.

An abstract sculptor and painter, Bradley’s work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and in countless other venues. He is an art critic, a former curator of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and a founding member of the Johannesburg Art Foundation, a South African art school established in 1964.

Bradley’s work will be exhibited in the Portlock gallery of the Black Cultural Center through March 6. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and by appointment on weekends.

Lafayette’s celebration of Black History Month includes a full calendar of concerts, lectures, interactive workshops, cultural presentations, and other events, as notable artists and scholars join students and faculty to honor the diversity, unity, and history that are the African American experience.
