As you know, February is Black History Month. For the last 15 years, the 20 North Gallery in downtown Toledo has been celebrating the month with art exhibits from African American artists.

Gallery owner Eric Hillenbrand says, "We have 21 different artists and an amazing array of talent."

Eighty percent of the African American artists on the walls this month at 20 North Gallery are from right here in northwest Ohio.

This year artists have represented what they've seen in national politics with several new works inspired by President Barack Obama.

In addition, the featured artist Aaron Bivins lines the wall with vibrant displays honoring legends of jazz.

This year, if snow keeps you away, the entire show is available online.
