African-American Vernacular Art

In Atlanta, the «Hard Truths» exhibition was in its final days at the High Museum. Arnett was scheduled to give a talk there at six o’clock, and arrived early.

If Adam Scott had to re-gift the claret jug, at least he passed the family silver on to an older friend who knows only too well what it feels like when a ton of bricks falls on your heart.
