Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman

Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman presents a selection of 45 works of art from this significant private collection, offering a rare glimpse at the couple's aesthetic interests and the artistic inspiration behind Green's own artwork. Building a Legacy explores the themes of work, love, belonging and spirituality. Works in the exhibition portray tender moments between a parent and child, struggles for racial equality, pride in ancestral heritage and strength derived through personal faith. The collection also expands the traditional notion of American art and identity, embracing a Pan-American approach that goes beyond the United States to include art and artists of African, Caribbean and Latin American descent. This approach provides a broader look at our nation's history and a better understanding of what it means to be American today. In addition to Green's own work, the collection highlights include works by artists such as, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Charles White, David Driskell, Sam Gilliam, Ruben Gonzalez and Reynier Llanes.
