THE GALLERY AT CARROLLWOOD CULTURAL CENTER IS SEARCHING FOR LOCAL TUSKEGEE AIRMEN TO HELP WITH UPCOMING EXHIBIT
June 19, 2013 (Tampa, FL) – The Gallery at Carrollwood Cultural Center recently announced plans to host THE TEST, a multi-media exhibition about the first African-American aviators in U.S. Military combat, better known as the Tuskegee Airmen. The exhibit will be displayed at the Center, located at 4537 Lowell Road, in February 2014.
THE TEST was created by artist Jerry Taliaferro. As part of the exhibit, Taliaferro would like to create wall panels about Tuskegee Airmen from, or residing in, the Tampa Bay Area.
Taliaferro is also looking for information about St. Petersburg’s Al Downing, the former music educator and namesake of the Al Downing Jazz Association. Downing served with the Tuskegee Airmen before leading the 613th Army Air Force Band in Tuskegee.
Taliaferro is hoping for scanned photos, copies or recordings of stories, letters, or any other artifacts belonging to area Tuskegee Airmen to help complete his exhibit. If you can help, please contact Taliaferro at (980) 236-7171, or email him at email@example.com by September 30, 2013. You can also contact the Center’s artistic director, Richard Haerther, at (813) 269-1310, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
