WOW Presents: Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco -- Revelations: Art from the African American South
Do you have the ability to see and create art out of something completely ordinary? To find meaning in things that other people might overlook, even throw away? For centuries African American artists working in the Southern part of the United States had to “make do,” utilizing whatever materials they could find; but what emerged will make you reconsider what art can and should be. In 2017, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco expanded their collection of African American Art with the acquisition of over 60 works (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and quilts) from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia. This lecture explores the artists and their works, informed by the historical backdrop in which they were created.
