Amazing Artist: Radcliffe Bailey

Radcliffe Bailey is an African American Atlanta-based artist. His show is at the High Museum of Art right now.  

I saw one of his artworks at UGA, which had a show of some of Georgia’s most reknown Black artists. Yesterday, all the art teachers in Fulton County got to go see the show at the High.

I fell in love with this beautiful series of pieces. They seem to tell stories about  survival, strength, african heritage, building things up, breaking things apart, and using things people have thrown away or forgotten. 

You might think, ” It’s just a pretty picture.” That’s okay! Just look.
