N'Namdi Center for Contemporary Art
The N'Namdi Center for Contemporary Art is a nonprofit dedicated to enlightenment through the arts. The Center showcases national artists and provides emerging local artists with a home for their art. Our programming includes curated and juried exhibitions, lectures, art invitationals, family events, performance art, experiential theater, and an Artist in Residence program.
N'Namdi Center
Created by George N'Nnamdi, this state of the art facility includes four exhibition spaces, including indoor and outdoor performance areas. George N'Namdi is a leading art dealer, with 30+ years experience as a gallery owner. The Center continues N'Namdi's work in the preservation of master artists and providing local artists a home for their art, including performance art and experiential theater.

The N'Namdi Center Complex houses Seva, a vegetarian restaurant; a gift and bookstore; wine bar; and additional boutique stores.

In addition to the exhibitions on view in our galleries, the N'Namdi offers a variety of programs designed to promote understanding, appreciation and knowledge of the arts.

N'Namdi Collection
The N'Namdi Collection is one of the finest private collections of African American art in the world. The combined works cover more than a century of art in every genre and is anchored by contemporary abstract paintings. The collection can be seen as a legacy investment which assists in securing the heritage of African-American artists. It is also a tool for educating audiences on the contributions of people of African descent to the discourse of modern and contemporary art. As the culmination of over 40 years of commitment, entrepreneurship, and discernment, the collection represents the many divergent approaches to making art, and the history, struggles and triumphs of a people.
