BSO Artwork

Please stop by and see our new exhibit of paintings by three African American artists of Kalamazoo:  Reginald Gammon, James Palmore, and Alfred Harris, Jr. 
A gift to the College funded the purchase of these works for display in the Black Student Organization Center in Hicks Center, which was dedicated in May 1992.

Reginald Gammon (1921-2005) was a professor of Fine Arts and Humanities at Western Michigan University for twenty one years.

Al Harris Jr. taught art in the Kalamazoo Public Schools for thirty four years.

James Palmore is a local educator and co-founder of the Black Arts and Cultural Committee.
