Artist Talk with Brian Washington

Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum
Grand Rapids, MI

Thursday, February 20, 2020 - 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST


Washington is a California based artist, attorney, and arts advocate. In explaining why he spent 13 years on the project, he said, "I wanted to depict the triumphant and poignant story of the American Civil Rights struggle through art, as a way of honoring those who have allowed me to live with the freedoms I now enjoy. There has been a continuum of important artists in history who have taken such an approach to art, and I want to carry on this tradition in today’s society."
