@westmorelandmuseum in Greenberg, PA outside Pittsburgh recently acquired a painting from my color purple series: Shug Kisses Celie, 2016 silkscreen ink and acrylic on mirrored plexi mounted on wood panel. . . . This is a pivotal moment in the novel a bit watered down in the movie. However, life changing for me at 14yrs old when I first saw it in 1985. . . . . Thanks to everyone for welcoming me. It’s not the size of the museum that matters it’s the vision of the collective leaders within the institution that does. #art #artist #painting #thecolorpurple #mickalenethomas #thejoseclub #alicewalker

So thrilled to photograph @taylormacnyc who “wants theater to make you uncomfortable. His wild, profane creations confront us with everything horrifying and joyous about America —- and ourselves” for @nytmag on the set of his new play “Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus” on Broadway. . . . #theater #playwright #photograph #broadway #gary #nytmag #nytimes #experimental #bestlife #newyorktimes #performance #mickalenethomas #mickalene

Honored to be featured on the cover of @sothebys magazine in an issue dedicated to celebrating artists of color. “To make a lasting difference, change needs to come from the top. According to a 2015 study by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, only 16% of leadership positions in art museums are held by people of colour and only 4% of museum curators are African American.” As stated so powerfully by Naomi Beckwith, a senior curator at the @mcachicago “People can’t just appear; they need to be given power.” @kerryjamesmarshs @kehindewiley @asherald @njidekaakunyilicrosby @sothebys #martinpuryear #romarebearden #mickalenethomas #blackartmatters #art #artist
