December 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until December 9, 2022
The Paul R. Jones Museum is proud to present Cedric Smith: Horsepower, an exhibition of new work by the artist which will be on view from First Friday, October 7 through December 9, 2022. Cedric Smith will visit Tuscaloosa, Thursday, November 3, at 4:30 p.m., to present a talk in the Camellia Room of Gorgas Library, as part of the Paul R. Jones Lecture Series. There will be an artist’s reception on First Friday, November 4, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., in the Jones Museum.
Cedric Smith’s work draws on a wide range of influences and sources, traditional and contemporary, to express his poignant observations of African American life. Much of his work is inspired by his observation as a child of the absence and negative portrayals of African Americans in advertising and on the labels of popular brands. The Paul R. Jones Collection currently has two works of painting and collage by Smith that showcase American culture and Black Americana. However, in this upcoming exhibition, the artist will be featuring all-new works and a new direction in his imagery.
