Visions of Our 44th President Exhibition
Visions of Our 44th President is an exhibition of realistic, life-sized busts designed, painted, and/or embellished by 44 contemporary African American artists. Commemorating the historical significance of Barack Obama’s presidency, Visions of Our 44th President is an exhibit of historic importance. The exhibit is organized by the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, MI and was curated by Peter Kaplan of Our World, LLC. Using the Visions of Our 44th President Barack Obama exhibition as a springboard, this will allow the participants to use professional artist to increase the awareness of the work of our out-going president, and spark conversations on the past 8 years of his tenure through the eyes of the forty-four different artists. These artists took on the assignment of interpreting a life-sized bust of President Barack Obama differently. The exhibition will foster self expression through art making and engage its visitors to learn various ways to generate conversation of political and personal will. The Visions exhibit will kick off a year of events celebrating the Black Archives’ 40th Anniversary.
