Artisits Kara Walker and Kerry James Marshall are the topic of this fall's small-group seminar led by Ann Wiklund. Both have roots in California and are past winners of the MacArthur Foundations's "Genius" Award. Walker is known for her highly provocative black silhouettes dramatizing the violence between slaves and slave owners. Marshall renders graphically styled scenes of urban and suburban scenes of references to African American fold art and popular culture. Both challenge stereotypes of African American life, bringing painting into the political arena.
