For Freedoms: Human Rights and Civil Rights has been up for a few months now at the BMA. In Birmingham, the topic of freedom is particularly revered as the city is still reconciling its history of civil rights abuses of people of color. The visitor response wall grows daily – the image here is a few weeks old now. Norman Lewis’s Alabama II (1969) looks striking in the 8th-Avenue lobby.
I was thrilled to co-curate this exhibition with Katelyn Crawford, the Curator of American Art at the BMA. Catch it before it closes on November 18, 2018.
