Segregated Influences: Wendel White & Tya Alisa Anthony


Colorado Photographic Arts Center
1070 Bannock St., Suite 75
Denver, CO 80204

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.
