Examples of Kehinde Wiley's work . . .
Wiley's painting of former President Obama will be permanently installed in the "America's Presidents" exhibit.
Sherald's painting of Michelle Obama will be on display through November in the museum's "Recent Acquisitions" section.
It's an interesting way to challenge perspectives and comfort zones. And it's a wonderful way to engage happy accidents and surprise.
The finished photographs from these two workshops will be featured in a show in Tallahassee in May called Waging Peace, and also at a show in Nashville, Tennessee in April and May at the University School of Nashville.
I love the fun that people seem to experience when I teach these types of workshops. It's amazing to me how many people express how much excitement they get from engaging materials and each other in this manner. And there's no way to know what the end result will be, which makes it even more exhilarating.
