Hard Truths: The Art of Thornton Dial

February 27, 2011-May 15, 2011

Stars of Everything, Collection of the Souls Grown Deep Foundation.

Hard Truths: The Art of Thornton Dial highlights the artist’s significant contribution to the field of American art and shows how Dial’s work speaks to the most pressing issues of our time—including thewar in Iraq, 9/11, and social issues like racism and homelessness. The exhibition presents 70 of Dial’s large-scale paintings, drawings and found-object sculptures, including 25 works on view for the first time. Spanning twenty years of his work as an artist, it is the most extensive showing of his art ever mounted.

Visit the Exhibition Microsite.

The exhibition is made possible through the generosity of the Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation. Additional programming support provided by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

I went to the show and it was profoundly controversial(Not to mention they tried to take my purse book-bag away). It reminded me allot of Anslem Keifer's work.
