It presents a comprehensive narrative of the contribution of African American artists to American art canon. The works in this exhibition were selected based on the contribution of the artists to the field of landscape art and are dated from 1850 to 2020. Of the 73 works, over half are selected from the Driskell Center collection, with others borrowed from outside collections and artist studios. Additionally, the exhibition includes a selection of 30 landscape works by Professor Driskell, known for his love and depiction of pine trees, gardens, and landscapes.
