Neill-Cochran House Museum presents "The Struggle and The Glory: The American Experience" opening reception
Neill-Cochran House Museum will celebrate the opening of their newest art exhibition, "The Struggle and The Glory: The American Experience." The collection by Cornelius Carter captures the struggle and glory of living life as an African-American in the United States throughout history, along with the artist’s faith in the dream of equality and opportunity for all.
Taking his inspiration from multiple traditions, Carter weaves together imagery from history, mythology, childhood, and life experience to create paintings that are thought-provoking, captivating, and beautiful. He often incorporates historical elements and classical styling, but from his own cultural perspective. People and their relationships are a central theme in his work.
