The Community Folk Art Center in Syracuse is celebrating Black History Month with a unique exhibit. WAER News caught up with Executive Director Tanisha Jackson at the gallery, and visual artist Lavett Ballard on a shaky phone line.  Ballard captures Black history by painting historical events in her series “Stories My Grandmother Told Me.” 

Appointments to see the exhibit in person can be made by emailing cfac@syr.edu. It also can be seen online here.  The exhibit runs through March 20th.
