Dedicated To



Bearden is considered "one of the most creative and original visual artists of the twentieth century"* yet he had to support himself as a social worker for the City of New York for 25 years. In that sense, the trajectory of his success is representative of the struggle of most non-mainstream artists throughout the planet. His powerful work speaks for itself. What is honored here is the inspiration he continues to provide to this artist.
