RBHS Unity Week | Talk about it Tuesday!

Kara Walker is a contemporary African American artist who lives and works in New York City. She creates art installations (spaces) covered with life size black silhouettes of people at play, visually dancing across the walls of a room at high contrast. She crosses the beautiful with the grotesque showing ornate human figures from around the turn of the 20th century, making a statement about slavery and the role of her culture in American history.
