If you are in #Austin, go and see the Witness: Arts and Civil Rights in the Sixties exhibit at @Blantonmuseum. This exhibit needs to be seen.

Go! #WitnessVoices #blantonmuseum

Just left the Blanton Museum of Art where I experienced the WITNESS – Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties exhibit. It was an amazing retrospective of work from a group of artists that weren’t afraid to use their gifts as a platform during the Civil Rights Movement. It was beautiful, disturbing, enlightening… These artists inspire me and forced me to ask myself, “How am I using my gifts?” I highly recommend this exhibit. Check it out in Austin! #blacklivesmatter #witnessvoices #artist #civilrightsmovement #peace #love #equality #blackisbeautiful #itsnotaboutmoneyandfame
