One of the most provocative and politically sharp artists currently working, Tylonn J. Sawyer’s latest exhibit is sure to spark discussion among his audiences. Titled White History Month, Vol. 1, Sawyer’s collection utilizes symbols of oppression from throughout American art to examine the controversy surrounding the removal of Confederate monuments. Sawyer’s history of work, aimed directly at questions of American identity and politics, has earned him widespread acclaim, including receiving the Alain Locke Recognition Award at the Detroit Institute of Arts this past February.
Exhibition open Monday through Friday, November 18 through December 19.
