At this compelling exhibition, viewers can explore two contemporary artists’ visual representations of racially charged aspects of American history. Wendel White’s photo series, Schools for the Colored, includes 20 black-and-white images of previously segregated schools that illustrate the stark contrast between the experiences of white and black Americans. Working in a different medium, Denver-based digital artist Tya Alisa Anthony explores how depictions of African-American women in Jet Magazine have changed over time, revealing how colorism has influenced beauty standards in this country.
