Phillip Guston Exhibit Delayed

    Phillip Guston is an artist who included cartoonish images of Klansmen in his imagery. His work includes 24 images of Klansmen. A retrospective of his work was supposed to go on display on and traveling display in June. The retrospective has been delayed until 2024 because of concern about how the artwork would be received in the racial tension present in 2020. The curators feel more time is needed to create a context for the Klansmen included in the display.

    Guston felt that his work held up a mirror to America.

    For curious souls, the artwork is included in an accompanying book, "Phillip Guyton Now". The book is currently available on Amazon and probably many libraries. There are also websites that provide access to his work.
