In Conversation: Wesley Clark
Since its installation as the first work in the new Museum, My Big Black America has made a deep impression on Members and visitors. The work has very personal meaning for DC-based artist Wesley Clark, who made it both in celebration of our country’s first African American president, Barack Obama, and to commemorate the hard work and sacrifices made by generations of African Americans. Clark returns to Asheville to discuss this key work in the Museum’s Collection, his background and artistic approach, as well as current and future projects with Kristi McMillan, director of learning & engagement, and Carolyn Grosch, WCU’s curator of collections and special exhibitions.
