What I would most like to celebrate about the 904 on 9/04 is Jacksonville‘s art museums and a pair of exhibitions they are hosting.
On August 2, the Academy Art Museum (AAM) in Easton, Maryland opens an exhibition: Fickle Mirror: Dialogues in Self-Portraiture.
The latest example of the Cummer Museum’s boldness can be seen during the exhibition “Revolve: Spotlight on the Permanent Collection.”
I have called Amy Sherald’s portrait of Breonna Taylor the most important painting of the 21st century to date.
Amy Sherald new paintings unveiled in the spring of 2021 reinforce her standing as one of America’s defining contemporary portraitists.
The Cleveland Museum of Art has added color prints by Amy Sherald, Barbara Jones-Hogu and Wadsworth Jarrell to its permanent collection.
The Amy Sherald Breonna Taylor portrait may prove to be the most important painting of the 21st century. See it at the Speed Art Museum.
