Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power has now moved from The Tate Modern Museum in London, to Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas.
It was my pleasure to be invited to attend the opening gala preview on February 2 of this year.
This show contains the work of many African American Masters who protested the treatment of black people. I was honored to meet with some of the artists and to be able to let them know how wonderful I think they are. There is little that’s more moving in life than art. Visual, written and audio presentations will intensify the experience in a way that reading does not. I found this show exhilarating and draining at the same time; however, it was incredibly moving and worthy of an ovation.
Aaron Galleries owns a painting in Soul of a Nation; Blackboard by artist Cliff Joseph and, hopefully, I will get to view the show again at the Brooklyn Museum, New York September 7 through February 3, 2019.
