Artists Reception – Unsung Heroes: An Art Exhibit Inspired by Charles White

July 14, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Unsung Heroes: An Art Exhibit Inspired by Charles White

Join us for an artists reception on July 14th, 6:30-7:30, at the Palisades Mall on the 1st Floor between Macy’s and Lord & Taylors.

Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA), in collaboration with Arts Council of Rockland (ACOR), the Gordon Center for Black Culture and Arts and the CEJJES Institute are proud to present – Unsung Heroes, an exhibition honoring the important, yet often overlooked, people in our community.

Charles White was socially conscious, politically active, and inspirational. White was one of the most influential African-American artists working in the twentieth century. He was best known for depicting the dignity, humanity and beauty of the black figure. This exhibit was open to artists of all ages who wished to exhibit works that looked at the important and heroic people in everyday life.

Exhibiting Artists: Eleanor Grace Miller, Sharon Rubinstein, Tiffany Freeman, Maureen Winzig, and Alice Mizrachi. The clay busts were created by students from the Blue Rock School.

If you wish to purchase an artwork, please call RoCA at 845-358-0877, to process the purchase.


This project is made possible with funds from the ReStart the Arts, a regrant program of ArtsWestchester with support from the Office of the Governor, the New York State Legislature and the New York State Council on the Arts. RoCA’s programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature. Funding is also made possible by the County of Rockland.
