September 2, 2023 to December 31, 2023

A Dr. Roy E. Morgan Memorial Exhibition, David C. Driskell and Friends: Creativity, Collaboration, and Friendship highlights the artistic legacy of David C. Driskell and the importance of his relationships with fellow artist friends—many of whom hold a significant place in the art canon.

The exhibition explores the work of, and Driskell’s relationships with, such figures as Hale Woodruff, James Porter, Elizabeth Catlett, Kara Walker, Romare Bearden, Keith Morrison, Jacob Lawrence, and many more. Original works of art created by Driskell are also featured, as well as ephemera from the Driskell Papers that exemplify the artists’ unique friendships.
