Opening in D.C.

My friend, artist Terry Dixon, has an opening featuring his latest body of work titled "Re-enslavement." Terry and I went to the Atlanta College of Art together. He is a successful working artist living in Chicago.

The "Re-enslavement" paintings are inspired by Douglas Blackmon’s 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Slavery by Another Name: The Re-enslavement of Black Americans from the
Civil War to World War II." The reception is Monday February 6Th at 6 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Library. Terry, along with another exhibiting artist, Robert Morris, will speak about their work.

I'm from Chicago so I'm curious if Terry's work is displayed here in the Windy City.

I am not sure, Dean, but go to his website and have a look. I don't think he has anything currently exhibiting there, but I think he has some works in permanent public collections. Maybe shoot him an email. Hope you are well, my friend. Think of you often....
