Clinée Hedspeth 13 has brought a pair of art exhibitions to the DuSable Museum of African American History that are breaking new ground through both their artistry and their attention to overlooked perspectives on black history. Both exhibitions are showing through February 2018 at DuSable.

Clinée is director of public programming and education at DuSable, the oldest independent African American history museum in the United States. At Dominican, Clinée double-majored in black world studies and philosophy and developed a love of history and activism.

Clinée grew up in a family of fine art collectors, and as one of only 14 African American certified art appraisers, has made it her mission to rediscover, document and promote work by black artists. She has joined the ranks of cultural gatekeepers who are able to formally add works of art to the historical record through appraisals accepted by the IRS. 

Clinee owns her own business, Hedspeth Art Consulting, which is located in the Bridgeport Art Center. She offers appraisal services and artist representation.
