Terry Adkins (1953-2014): RIP

Terry Adkins, the African American artist and professor of fine art at University of Pennsylvania, has died. An artist of great substance best known for his "Recitals"--sculptural installations and performances in honor of under-recognized Black historical figures, Adkins was a poet of form who also understood art making as socio-political work.
Travel well, brother
Let the living now worry
About the harvest of bones
