Newcomb Art Museum Spring 2024 Exhibits

Look forward to viewing three new exhibits at Newcomb Art Museum this month “Legacy Traces,” “Victory Workers,” and “William Edmondson: A Monumental Vision.” The exhibition “Legacy Traces” features a selection of artworks acquired over the past decade, a majority of which were collected in the last five years. “Victory Workers” foregrounds twentieth century African American artists who depict Black labor. The exhibition—spanning multiple decades of labor and freedom movements—includes printmaking, painting, sculpture, and photography. Finally, “William Edmondson: A Monumental Vision” presents works by the self-taught sculptor William Edmondson (Davidson County, Tennessee, c. 1874–1951), who is considered one of the most important Black American artists of the early 20th century. All three exhibits opened on January 18 and close on June 1, 2024. Read more about each here.
