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.
