The Paul R. Jones Museum:

Forward Movement: Selections from the Collection of Johnny and Allison Howze

The Paul R. Jones Museum presents Together for Creativity: A Collaboration with Central Elementary School, an exhibition of artworks from the Paul R. Jones Collection and artworks by Central Elementary fifth-grade students. The exhibition runs January 12-February 25, 2022 and there will be a reception for the artists on Friday, February 4 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., during downtown Tuscaloosa’s First Friday festivities.

Last fall, museum director Daniel White gave the fifth graders a tour of the Paul R. Jones Museum while the exhibition Forward Movement: Selections from the Collection of Johnny and Allison Howze was on display. The Howzes, inspired by Paul R. Jones, have been collecting works primarily by African American artists since 1997.
