Talk and book signing for Unpublished Black History: Rediscovered Images from the New York Times
Darcy Eveleigh, photo editor at the Times, and Rachel Swarns, a contributing writer for the newspaper, discuss the cache of photos uncovered in the New York Times archives in 2016 that documents events and personalities that shed light on African American history over the past several decades. One of the topics of discussion was why the photos weren't published. Reasons included editing for size and the text heavy format of the paper. For some, there was no discernable reason why and Swarns wondered if the photos had been published if perceptions would have been changed.
Last night we had our last Dimensional Landscape class with @smithsonianassociates. It was fun to see how all of the students finished up their pieces! I’m sad to see this class come to an end but I’m looking forward to my next volunteer gig with the Studio Arts program and mosaic teacher extraordinaire —Bonnie Fitzgerald! .

These mosaic landscapes are in their final stages, and looking quite spectacular! All the students in the @smithsonianassociates dimensional landscape class really have gotten the hang of of this whole mosaic thing! 😁 Thanks to the guidance of our amazing teacher Bonnie Fitzgerald we all have a piece of art we can be excited and proud of! #smithsonianartclass#mosaic#mosaiclandscapes#acreativedc#dcartclass
Having such a hard time with completing my first mosaic landscape. I can’t quite figure out what to do with the sky and water so that it doesn’t feel to “messy” or contrived. I’m struggling with the decision of a dark shadow under the rock formation vs. a darker reflection (sky) shadow. Gah!!!!! I just don’t know what to do. It could be that I just don’t have the right colors of glass I need, but I’d like to think outside he box —mosaics are tricky! #workinprogress#mosaics#mosaiclandscapes
