Black History Month Artist Talk – Donald Black Jr.

Wednesday, February 23 2022 @ 5:10 pm

Black History Month artist talk - Donald Black Jr.

In honor of African American History Month, the John J. McDonough Museum of Art is excited to feature the work of regional photographer Donald Black Jr. The artist will give a talk in the galleries on February 23 at 5:10pm. Black’s artwork will be on display through March 5.

Black’s A Day No One Will Remember is a series of photographs of ordinary days that are filled with childhood play, imagination, quiet, creative expression, and innocence. Centering the Black child in this series is critical because their premature loss of adolescence. Stories of childhood pain and trauma often dominate our memory. These images represent the balance against the mental suffering that takes place when personal trauma overwhelms us. Created in Donald Black Jr’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio—a city marked with violence, poverty, grief and trauma—these images carry the city’s gritty, moody and stark living conditions. Black’s personal familiarity with Cleveland allows these images to illuminate an authentic and literal “close to home” narrative.

Museum hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-4pm.
