Congratulations to @sysclark on the acquisition of her piece ‘Monumental’ by the Smithsonian Museum of @americanart !!
Her remarkable piece measures 15x30 feet, and will be on view at the @renwickgallery starting May 13, and we are delighted to celebrate with an exhibition of Clark’s work, including her latest edition ‘Confederate, surrender’ the following day from 3-6 at Mixografia
this day in 1865 marks the the truce and pivotal surrender of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox. @sysclark reflects on this crossroads of history, with the truce flag serving as a symbol of the road ahead, the work left to be done to end white supremacy.
