Late last month I went to the Cincinnati Art Museum for the first time. While I was there I saw an exhibit called 30 Americans. The collection was composed of African-American artists from the past thirty years. Read more about the show here.
Below are some of the high points from the show. (And, may I say, there were A LOT.)
