With more than 30 objects on loan from private collections and cultural institutions, this group exhibition showcases four groundbreaking Alabama artists: Thornton Dial, Lonnie Holley, Ronald Lockett and Joe Minter. Together, their work chronicles Black America as observed from the Birmingham-Bessemer area— the brutality, the determination and the deeply-lived experiences.

This exhibition is organized for Auburn by guest curator Dr. Aleesa Pitchamarn Alexander, the Robert M. and Ruth L. Halperin Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Co-director of the Asian American Art Initiative at the Cantor Arts Center Stanford University.
