A Complex Frontier: Selected Works by Bernard Williams
On exhibit through October 5, 2014 - Temporary Exhibition Gallery
This exhibition examines the historic role of African Americans on our nation’s expanding frontier. In this body of work, Williams addresses complex social interactions that occurred between Black, European, Hispanic and Native Americans, particularly in the West. The icons and imagery used by the artist, rooted in the urban context of his native Chicago, reveal the layers of cultural heritage we share as Americans. Booth Museum is proud to partner with Africa Atlanta 2014, a city wide year-long celebration of cultural and economic bonds among African, European, and American cultures, on this exhibit.
