Black Art Matters

  • overview
  • Be challenged by artist Willie Cole’s Blackronyms: blackboards with word prompts such as CIVIL, RIGHTS, WHITE, BLACK that encourage a response from the viewer. The artist openly invites us to study the blackboards, pondering what democratic ideals and equality might be one day.  Although the artist grew up in Newark, NJ, he traces his family roots to nearby Brunswick and Columbus Counties. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the David C. Driskell Prize-- the first national award to honor and celebrate contributions to the field of African-American Art and Art History.
