In Light of Recent Events

The recent sad events in cities across the country cannot pass without comment from this museum.  We currently are exhibiting the work of Ronald Lockett, a self-taught African-American artist who expressed in his work a sensitivity to the plight of black men in America and the social movements that both constrained and uplifted their quest for equality. Lockett’s artworks condemn violence and call out for greater understanding.
