Please join us for The Artist’s Voice featuring Jack Whitten in conversation with Assistant Curator Naima J. Keith. New York-based artist Jack Whitten’s (b. 1939) earliest experiments with painting date back to the 1960s, a period during which he created dynamic works inspired by abstract expressionism. Noted for their raucous colors and density of gesture combined with topical content, these artworks manifest emotionally complex meditations on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War.This program is free with museum admission.
