Black Artists And Arts Education In
 20th Century Louisville

Explore the historical context of three generations of black artists in Louisville with Filson Associate Curator of Collections Aaron Rosenblum. They include Bob Thompson, Sam Gilliam, Kenneth Young, Ed Hamilton, William Duffy, G. C. Coxe and Elmer Lucille Allen. “Many studied at the University of Louisville, some only shortly after the school desegregated. As barriers fell in art education, and as the Louisville art scene has evolved, each artist has faced a different set of choices, opportunities, and challenges,” according to the Filson.
