Art Library Exhibit: African-American Women Artists

In celebration of Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March, this exhibit highlights four contemporary African-American women artists, Kara Walker, Betye Saar, Alison Saar and Lorna Simpson. Distinguished in their own right, these women artists share varying perspectives on race, gender and sexuality expressed in their respective works using a variety of media. While these artists express different points of views and attitudes in their art, this display aims to spark dialogue or discussion on race, gender and sexuality among viewers.

For more information on the artists featured on this display, please search ODU’s library catalog, and/or check Hofheimer Art Library’s collection.
