CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) –

The exhibit is free and is open until Jan. 27

A new art exhibit in Charlottesville is hoping to help highlight the city’s African-American history.

The Signs of Change exhibition held its opening night at The Bridge Progressive Art Initiative on Friday, January 11.

The artwork illustrates several significant events in Charlottesville’s African-American history.

Organizers say they hope the work helps educates the community on the city’s past and culture.

“Every single topic was something new to me and the more I researched the more I learned, and it’s an amazing opportunity to dig in to this stuff,” Bolanle Adboye, an artist, said.

If you couldn’t make it to opening night, the exhibit will be open and free to the public through January 27.
