Works by Thornton Dial and Lonnie Holley on view at the University of Delaware University Museums

Lonnie Holley / Abstract with Profile / 1993 / Mixed media / University of Delaware University Museums

Works by Thornton Dial and Lonnie Holley are on view in “Bodyscapes,” at the University of Delaware University Museums, through July 15.

“Bodyscapes” is drawn from the museum’s Paul R. Jones collection of African American art, and explores ways that artists use the human figure as an expression of the human condition. Including works by artists ranging from Dial to David Driskell, Alison Saar, and Hale Woodruff, the exhibition focuses on ideas of personal and mythic identity, collective experience, and social reality.

As the exhibition’s co-curator, I will participate in a panel discussion about Paul R. Jones and the exhibition this Thursday (March 17), 4-6 pm, in the museum’s Mechanical Hall gallery. I hope to see some of you there!
