We hope you’ll join us for the first lecture in SAM’s new series, Art in Our Time, hosted in partnership with Spartanburg County Public Libraries!!
This series will allow our community to come together and engage with themes present in SAM’s exhibitions, starting with our current exhibit Black Anatomy.
Our first speaker will be contemporary painter Crystal Marshall! Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, her paintings pay homage to her life’s experiences rooted in cultural disparities in the modern-day African diaspora. Her distinctive personal style emanates isolation, self-reflection and expresses the spirit and atmosphere of the black consciousness in efforts to reconcile its relationship with true identity and image.
