An artist esteemed for his bold, colorful and candid paintings reflecting life in the African American community and commenting on race, religion, war and history, Pippin's work will be examined by a new generation of scholars looking at such issues as influence, racial and religious politics, patronage, and the artist's world view.

The exhibition is curated by Audrey Lewis, associate curator at the Brandywine River Museum of Art.
