    • Tradition Redefined: The Larry and Brenda Thompson Collection of African American Art

    April 23 -August 29, 2010
    This extraordinary private collection presents 72 works by African American artists that document the many expressions of the African Diaspora. The strength of the Thompson’s collecting process is their attention to artists who have typically not been recognized in the traditional narratives of African American art.  In addition to the acknowledged “masters” with artists such as Ratcliffe Bailey, Romare Bearden, David Driskell, and Mildred Thompson, the Thompsons have collected works by artists who have been labeled “emerging,” “unknown,” “outsider,” “eccentric,” “vernacular,” “regional” and more.  The result is a collection that redefines the landscape of American art, offering a more in-depth, inclusive understanding of African American artists and their aesthetic and social concerns. 

    • Jazz Brunch at Café Nola
      Sunday, May 30, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

    April 23 -August 29, 2010
    This extraordinary private collection presents 72 works by African American artists that document the many expressions of the African Diaspora. The strength of the Thompson’s collecting process is their attention to artists who have typically not been recognized in the traditional narratives of African American art.  In addition to the acknowledged “masters” with artists such as Ratcliffe Bailey, Romare Bearden, David Driskell, and Mildred Thompson, the Thompsons have collected works by artists who have been labeled “emerging,” “unknown,” “outsider,” “eccentric,” “vernacular,” “regional” and more.  The result is a collection that redefines the landscape of American art, offering a more in-depth, inclusive understanding of African American artists and their aesthetic and social concerns.

    My blog is in a funk right now. I have been testing new things for a while. The double posts are finished. I promise. But the incessant photos and videos are probably going to continue until I find the right way to present them.
     
    The images I have been making like the one above I do on my phone. If you want a funny ad/flier (no direction please, don't offend the arteest). Just email me the text you want (limit 80 characters) and an image. If you don't have an image I'll get you one. I got your back. You can pay what you think its worth, which could be nothing. If I don't flip it back in 12 hours its free anyway. Limited time offer. No guarantees about nothing. 'Ceptin' I think you'll love working me and my phone.
