Curator (“Visual Art and
the American Experience”)

Previously: Associate Curator of American Art at the Dayton Art Institute

Quote: “Yes, sometimes art is about
blackness. But just because there’s a black
face in it doesn’t make it a ‘black work of art’ —
it makes it a work of art, it makes it a portrait. . . .
“I often tell people, ‘You wouldn’t say “white American art,” ’ but we do say things
like ‘Latino American art.’ ”
