What to know
The Arts & Science Center will host Madai Taylor’s exhibition “An Elegy to America in Black & White II: The Artwork of Madai Taylor” from Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022-Saturday, Feb. 24, 2023. ASC invites the public to a free reception and artist talk from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28.
This exhibition builds upon Taylor’s 2018 body of work and is a poignant and provocative exhibition of non-subjective works of art. Accompanying the visual work are poetic writings that detail the reason for the pain and suffering of Black folk brought by ship and sold into bondage, as it relates to Biblical prophecy, against the backdrop of American history, as exacted by the American spirit.

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
