...of Black SkinFinding black skin as subject matter in fine art museums is hard to come by, especially in Columbus. Most representations are paintings of slavery, modern day poverty, or old racist imagery shown as educational materials. Artists like Kehinde Wiley and Mickalene Thomas are a rare commodity in portraiture that celebrates the beauty and pride of black culture. This exhibition of local artists collaborated to take the next step in giving enduring examples of the beauty of black skin.
