The paintings that make up “Joseph Diggs: Proud 2 Be American” will be on view at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center through June 16.

The exhibit celebrates and memorializes several generations of the artist’s African-American and Cape Verdean family. Diggs was born in France, and his family eventually settled on Cape Cod.
