Engaging African Art: Highlights from the Horn Collection

He caught the attention of the Flint Institute of Arts director John Henry, who invited him to exhibit his collection in the museum. Starting this weekend, Horn's collection finds a temporary home in Flint as part of the museum's Black History Month celebrations. $10 donation
