The painter Robert Colescott passed away last week at age 83. Although I was exposed to Colescott's work in college, I didn't know until I read the his obituary in the New York Times that he studied with Fernand Leger and represented the US at the 1997 Venice Biennale. A Colescott lithograph from the Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of African-American Art will be on view in the Carter's special exhibition galleries through August 23.
