Join Derrick Adams for a conversation with journalist Alvin Hall exploring the artworks and themes of the new exhibition Derrick Adams: Sanctuary, moderated by curator Dexter Wimberly.
Derrick Adams: Sanctuary consists of 50 works of mixed-media collage, assemblage on wood panels, and sculpture presented in an installation designed by the artist that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, during the Jim Crow era in America.
