Image: Souvenir I (detail), 1997, Kerry James Marshall.
The Souvenir series are history paintings about the 1960s. They commemorate different aspects of the Civil Rights Movement and Black liberation struggle and pay tribute to the many individuals who were murdered or died during this time.

The angelic figure with glittering gold wings in this series are modeled after Marshall’s wife, actress Cheryl Lynn Bruce.
"If you don’t understand the capacity of materials to carry meaning. . . . you’re limited in your range to simple expressions rather than complex ideas."

I hope you’re following @mygranddaddyscloset :truly a labor of love.
Gentlemen scholars :
Palmer (Tuskegee, Alabama)
Instructor & Three Graduates with Diplomas and Geraniums
Gelatine-Silver Print, circa 1905
:
The Tuskegee Institute (founded in 1881) stressed vocational education and actively spread improved farming methods with its pioneering use of agricultural extension services throughout the South. Many of its students received degrees in botany under the faculty led by the renowned plant scientist Dr. George Washington Carver.
Nothing is known about the photographer or the unidentified subjects of this photograph. The Archivist of Tuskegee University, Cynthia Wilson, reports the instructor in this image does not appear in other photographs of faculty members from the same era, suggesting these students may be graduates of some other institution in the community

Followers 🍾🎊🎈🎉 For the last two years or so I’ve been working on @mygranddaddyscloset I’m so excited that it reached 5k followers today!! Right now it is an informal archive that engages with historical men’s fashion,dress, and costume through the lens of black men globally in modalities of sartorial adornment and performance. Though the page is about clothing rather than personal narratives, I love how narratives concerning race, class, sexual orientation, gender construction, along with many other heavy hitting topics come to the fore. I try my best to find information about every photograph; unfortunately many of the photos that I choose are of unknown people and photographers. This gives viewers a chance to speculate or even offer information that they may know about the image. So far this has been a labor of love. I appreciate the support. Love Danny

Just about every week young collectors ask me how they can start their art collection with affordable works, and support black artists. Well, Yesterday I picked up this amazing original print by Natalie Osborne @natalieodecor Natalie offers very well priced original paintings, collages, and prints. The work is sophisticated and multidimensional representing the beauty of women of color, but what I love most is is that this is art you can live with in your home. Natalie will also crated custom commissioned pieces! Follow her IG, check out her e-commerce and feel free to contact her. Also she is at the @randolphmarket market today if you’re in Chicago, stop by! .

I can’t wait to frame this ode to Josephine Baker and hang it in my entry hall. Thanks @natalieodecor ❤️

#impasto
Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.

It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.
To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” - Kofi Annan, Chief of United Nations
