The Collections:

Parker Collection 1:00PM -2:00PM Tour

This massive and breathtaking art collection is housed in a stunning Kenwood 

duplex condo.  Over 30 years in the making, this collection includes works of art 

from the entire African diaspora, including an unrivaled collection of African art, 

artifacts and masks seldom seen outside of museums.  A portion of this fine 

collection is memorialized in a must have reference book, “African American Art: 

The Diaspora and Beyond” by Parker, a prolific collector, art historian, professor 

and lecturer. 

The condo abounds with rich color and texture that creates a lush yet relaxing environment. At home among equally intriguing furniture and lighting, these beautifully choreographed and stunning paintings, sculptures and masks tell an intimate story. Viewers should plan to spend extra time at this venue which includes over 500 works of art that persuasively jostles for notice in the stairwells, hallways, bathrooms and kitchen.  This massive collection includes examples of work done by all of the 19 Diasporal Rhythms featured artists. 


McCoy Collection 2:00PM-3:00PM Tour

This gorgeous North Kenwood condo is filled with a vast collection of art from the 

African Diaspora and beyond – over 1100 works of art collected over more than 

four decades.  Although there are many pieces collected during this collector's 

travels across the Americas, Europe and Africa, the overwhelming majority of the 

300+ artists represented in the collection are from the Chicago area.  This unique 

collection also includes examples of work done by 23 of the 24 Diasporal Rhythms 

featured artists.  

This large, sun-filled space is beautifully decorated with sleek mid-century modern 

furniture that complements the art that fills the space. Each piece of art is lovingly 

and intelligently arranged to create a harmonious installation that that wonderfully 

surprises and entertains in one area, provokes thoughtful conversation in another 

and overall calms the spirit.  Arranged in mini-collections, the viewer will be 

completely enthralled with the entryway through to the living room, hallway, 

bathrooms and back porch – and don't ignore the ceiling.
