George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum presents "Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective"
To recognize the outstanding contributions to Dallas by local African American artists, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, NBC 5, and the Multicultural Arts Alliance present “Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective,” a special art exhibit.
"Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist’s Perspective" features the works of acclaimed local artists, including Nathan Jones, James Kemp, and four exceptional art students from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts: Taylor Marsh, Andrew Perez, Julie Torres, and Aleah Washington.
The pieces included in this exhibit employ a range of media and address a variety of different subjects, perspectives, and concepts as they relate to the artists' personal narratives and experiences. Drawing upon themes from nature, history, the environment, and personal reflections, the works demonstrate how artists from different generations and worldviews express themselves through their art.
There will be gallery talk on February 12 featuring artist James Kemp. The exhibit will open on February 9 and will be on display through February 23.
