A Visit with Ashley Bryan

Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Opening reception: Friday, October 10, 2014 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

COA’s Ethel H. Blum Gallery and the Ashley Bryan Center invite you to experience the breadth of Ashley Bryan's extraordinary 80-year career in art, literature and music.

The exhibit features Ashley's paintings, drawings, exquisite illustrated books and some of the fantastic puppets featured in his newest book of poems. Ashley's personal story of courage, perseverance, and dedication is presented in a timeline that includes seldom-seen work from the artist's years serving in the segregated U.S. Army in WWII. Viewers will also have the opportunity to view a trailer of a documentary film soon to be released about Ashley's life and work.
