      Description

      The Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation's Skylight Gallery features year-round exhibits of established and emerging artists of African descent, such as painter James "Jimmy" Green, sculptor Chief Komalafe and painter and Krasner Fellowship recipient Jewel Golden. Designed by the illustrious architect I. M. Pei, the main gallery houses the Abra-Ka-Zebra gift shop which features works of artisans such as the ceramist Noel Copeland and Onaway Millar. The Restoration Dance Theatre offers regularly scheduled professionally taught classes in African, Caribbean, jazz and modern dance by scholar-instructors such as Youseff Koumbassa, Marie Brooks and Katherine Dunham. Classes are offered from October through June. For the last decade, the Marie Brooks Pan Caribbean Dance Company has been the guest resident company at Restoration. Known for their Caribbean and African dances and signature colorful swirling skirts, the group performs at dozens of community events annually. The Billie Holiday Theatre, the jewel of Restoration, produces a 36 to 40 week season, including three major productions of primarily original work such as Lotto by Cliff Roquemore, Over Forty by Celeste Walker and Once in a Wifetime by Celeste Walker. Home of Brooklyn's only professional black repertory company, Samuel Art-Williams, producer of television and film, actor Samuel Jackson and T'Chnia Arnold of the popular sitcom Martin, all spent part of their early careers performing at the "Billie."
