Meet The Artist Exhibit Reception: Cultural Heroes

National Civil Rights Museum says
Join us for a reception with the Cultural Heroes sculptor Alan LeQuire as he talks about his work and the inspiration for the exhibit. In this series, LeQuire strives to create a larger-than-life portrait of individuals that have the breath of life. Sculpting his personal heroes, he understands and communicates their artistic personality. The result is a miraculous object that possesses the living presence of a person and gives it permanence.

Cultural Heroes was conceived by Alan LeQuire and includes gigantic busts sculpted in a moment of performance. Cultural Heroes features the first seven icons of an ongoing series of artists who were key role players for civil rights, putting their careers on the line. The artist’s seven role models currently represented in the sculptures are Marian Anderson, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Lead Belly, Paul Robeson, Woody Guthrie and Josh White.

The reception is FREE and open to the public. RSVP by clicking the link provided in the "ticket" tab.
