TULSA—The Kinsey African-American Art & History Collection will be open to the public on Saturday and will be at the Gathering Place and Greenwood Center.

The exhibit will be at the Gathering Place and Greenwood Cultural Center.

The free exhibit will be at the center through Sunday, June 27.

The collection has been described by critics to be one of the most important and prestigious collections of its kind in the world.

The collection includes a wide range of artifacts, books, documents, photography, paintings and personal belongings that chronicles African-American achievements and history from 1595 to the present.

Bernard and Shirley Kinsey, Khalil Kinsey and influential members of the Tulsa arts community are expected to attend an opening reception on Friday.

The collection has been on a national tour since 2007.

More than 15 million have seen the national award-winning exhibit on display at institutes around the world, including the University of Hong Kong Museum and Gallery, the California Africa-American Museum, EPCOT-Walt Disney World, and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

This is the first time the collection has come to Oklahoma.
