Conversations with Artists: Amy Sherald with Dorothy Kosinski
Through her portraits, Amy Sherald explores the ways people construct and perform their identities in response to political, social, and cultural expectations. Her work offers a critical view of African American cultural history and the representation of the African American body. Known for using a grayscale palette to paint skin tones, Sherald challenges the concept of color-as-race. Sherald will be in conversation with Dorothy Kosinski, Director of The Phillips Collection. This event takes place at the David C. Driskell Center, located on campus at the University of Maryland in College Park. Free; Reservations required.
