To Know Ourselves: Exploring the Work of Black Artists in SCMA's Collection
Saar, Alison. American (1956–). Topsy-Turvy. 1999. Sculpture; wood painted red and black with plaster, metal and cloth. Purchased with the Janet Wright Ketcham, class of 1953, Acquisition Fund and the Kathleen Compton Sherrerd, class of 1954, Fund for American Art.
This Saturday, Beryl Ford '17 will be giving a gallery talk at the museum titled "To Know Ourselves: Exploring the Work of Black Artists in SCMA's Collection". What is especially exciting about this is that Beryl is our Student Picks curator for April! Her exhibition in the Cunningham Center is April 1 from 1-4 PM, and will examine similar themes of Black identity through photography. I highly encourage those who can to come to both Beryl's talk this weekend and her Student Picks Show!
Lovell, Whitfield. American (1959–). Temptation. 2000. Sculpture; charcoal on wood, four frames with glass, chair and metal hook. Purchased with the Hillyer-Tryon-Mather Fund.
