The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, founded in 1987, owns and exhibits a vital collection of 7,000 works of art, artifacts and popular culture objects that documents the experience, expressions and history of people of African descent in America. The Amistad Center is an independently incorporated and managed not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, located in the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. The Amistad Center is not related to the many other organizations in Connecticut and across the country who share the name Amistad. Amistad is a popular choice as it remembers a significant event and calls to mind African American strength and history. OUR MISSION: We celebrate art and culture influenced by people of African descent through education, scholarship and social experiences. OUR VISION: Minds are opened, lives are changed.
