Petrucci Family Foundation's
Tribeca Showcase

371 Broadway at Franklin St., NYC


In May and June of 2023, the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art installed its first exhibition showcase in New York City. PFF worked with Program Producer, Linda Lees, to organize 12 panels and conversations that pair African American artists, curators, gallerists, and museum executives to discuss Black art -- where it's been, where it is now, and where it's going.

Watch all 12 of these conversations on PFF's YouTube channel:  

Many thanks to Crumlic Media for the beautiful videography and edits. Thank you also to all of the panelists who participated in these conversations!
