Driving in to work today I heard a story on NPR that kept me in my car long after I arrived at my destination. The story talks about the murals that are on view at the Justice Department headquarters. It was an incredible reminder of the power that art can have in educating, inspiring, and uniting the country.
The artwork above is in the Carter’s collection, but not currently on view. It is by John Steuart Curry, one of the artists featured in the story. The image is of John Brown who is one of the more controversial figures in our nation’s history.
