It was amazing to be selected as one of the lecturers for the 30 Americans traveling exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The exhibition offers a diverse range of contemporary art from 30 African American artists in the Rubell Collection.
The exhibit 30 Americans at the Cincinnati Art Museum showcases works by many of the most important African American artists of the last three decades. As a companion to this exhibition, the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the DAAP Galleries, University of Cincinnati will present “30 Americans Plus….The Region”—a two part exhibition that will recognize the diverse range of work offered by African American artists from our community.

From romantic landscapes to portraiture, the students in my Kennedy Heights Arts Center Camp Create: Power of Painting class, created works that capture their talent as well as their imagination. For this one week camp we visited the Cincinnati Art Museum to get our inspiration flowing. I would like to thank Cincinnati Art Museum Docent Geri Sowell for taking the time to tour the museum with us, and I would also like to thank the camp goers for making some incredible paintings. Check out their work below.
