Denison Museum in Granville, Ohio is currently hosting Say It Loud, a curated exhibition of the work of contemporary celebrated black artists.
While it’s not possible during this unprecedented time to see the exhibition in person, you can experience Say It Loud through a short video filmed at Denison University Art Museum.
“From the collection of Hedy Fischer and Randy Shull, Say It Loud includes the work of world-renowned contemporary black artists who document and challenge dominant historical perspectives and events. The exhibition illustrates the struggles and achievements of African-Americans, with themes focused on ethnic identity, institutional racism, gender, and beauty. Works come from an array of Guggenheim, Whitney, and MoMA artists, including Kehinde Wiley (Obama’s official portraitist), Kerry James Marshall, Alison Saar, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Mickalene Thomas, Hank Willis Thomas, and Sanford Biggers.”
