Thomas’ bold, thoughtful and deeply moving artwork asks us to see and challenge systems of inequality that are woven into the fabric of contemporary life, leaving no doubt that art is an essential tool in ongoing struggle for social justice.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a variety of programming designed with both social distancing and community building in mind.
Details on all programs are posted at cincinnatiartmuseum.org/hankwillisthomas. They were made possible in part by LPK, the Kroger African American Associates Resource Group, Eric and Jan-Michele Kearney, and Pamela Rhodes and Lennell Myricks.
