The images of a black mammy, whiteface and blackface, a black woman eating a watermelon--artist Beverly McIver challenges stereotypes of African Americans through her collection of paintings. She paints herself and family members doing typical activities--working, dancing, fighting--with bold brushstrokes, vivid color, and a raw sensitivity. Tue-Fri 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sat 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sun noon-3 p.m.
