Souls Grown Deep like the Rivers


the details

For generations, Black artists from the American South have forged a unique art tradition, working in near-isolation from established practices to create masterpieces in clay, driftwood, roots, soil, and recycled and cast-off materials that articulate America’s painful past, from the inhuman practice of enslavement to the cruel policies of the Jim Crow era. Souls Grown Deep like the Rivers: Black Artists from the American South is a wide-ranging survey of Black art in the American South, from Thornton Dial and Nellie Mae Rowe to the quilters of Gee’s Bend.
