A part of what we do as artists of all stripes is attempt to synthasize the world in a meaningful way. For me, a part of that has always been reading and (attempting) to learn more about the current state of things, as well as looking to the past.
Or course, sometimes that means i buy too wholeheartedly into another ideology, but that too can be exciting, fun, and ultimately humbling (especially when you come out the other side).
Today, at the UNF Gallery:
"Jacob Lawrence- An American Visual Griot" Lecture by Dr. Carolyn Williams
Description: UNF History Professor Dr. Carolyn Williams will be speaking about the life and work of the great 20th Century American painter Jacob Lawrence in the University Gallery from 11am-12pm on Thursday, February 26, 2009. Dr. Williams will focus on Lawrence's Toussaint L'Ouverture Series and The Migration Series.
The event is free and open to the public.
