'Sweet Music Never Heard Until Diversity Plays Catch-up: Contemporary African American Thought' 

When: Jan. 5-26 2018
Phone: 518-563-1604
Curator and former cultural journalist Donna Mason organized this show at Plattsburgh’s Strand Center for the Arts with a distinct mission: “[Artists of color] are often [not] co-opted into the museum system until later in life,” she told the Press-Republican, “usually at the end of an arc (death bed), when major museums realize that there is a gap in their collection.” This exhibition advances its correctional ethos through the work of six artists: Sadikisha Saundra Collier, Dr. Myrah Brown Green, Al Johnson, Otto Neals, Eric Pryor and Theda Sandiford. Styles vary, but the juxtaposed materials and textures convey exuberance, ease and even musicality.
