Join us for a special reception to celebrate the opening of A Collaboration of Creativity: Print Work by David C. Driskell.
David C. Driskell (1931-2020) was an artist, scholar, and historian who transformed the field of African American art through his own work, his advocacy, and his scholarship. As an artist, he is known mostly for modernist paintings, collages, and prints. In 2003, he began a lifelong collaboration with Master Printer Curlee R. Holton. Together they produced over 40 creative projects with two in progress at the time of Driskell’s passing.
In A Collaboration of Creativity, Holton shares a curated grouping of approximately 30 prints he made with Driskell through the fine art publishing studio Raven Editions and The Driskell Center at University of Maryland. The exhibition showcases the artistic genius of Driskell, the printmaking mastery of Holton, and the power of collaboration.
This exhibition is presented in collaboration with Raven Fine Art Editions and The David C. Driskell Center.
We are grateful to the following partners for their support of this and other Pyramid Atlantic exhibitions: The City of Hyattsville, Maryland Department of Commerce, and Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
