Each One Teach One: Preserving Legacy in Perpetuity

Each One Teach One: Preserving Legacy in Perpetuity

Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at.
Quincy Jones

For the artists featured in this exhibition, sharing their gifts with others is an inextricable part of their work and lives. Each One Teach One: Preserving Legacy in Perpetuity is seated in our Main Gallery featuring the work of over thirty artists who have taken part in the meaningful exchange of wisdom, ideas, process, career, culture, and more. The works of mentors are juxtaposed alongside the work of their mentees, highlighting the indelible impact the relationship has had on both parties. The artists included in the exhibition speak to their experiences in their own words, translating what can be seen in the power of their art into a narrative that shines a light on the importance of the mentor/mentee relationship. Featuring sculptural works, paintings, fiber arts, collage, and more this exhibition in partnership with Art in the Atrium, Inc. explores another dimension of Black art and artistry, emphasizing the importance of legacy, community, and the profound impact it has on the arts.

This exhibition is curated by Art in the Atrium, Inc.’s Nette Forne’ Thomas, Onnie Strother, Bryant Small, and Ron Powell with Michelle Graves, Curator, Morris Museum.

Support for this exhibition is provided by M&T Bank and the Joseph Robert Foundation.
