American Theory, was painted live on January 8, 2017 at the Tacoma Art Museum's Free Community Festival for the 30 Americans Fine Arts Exhibit sponsored by the Rubell Family Foundation.

There were approximately 45 fine art paintings, sculptures, installations and video presentations included in this exhibit, each art piece created by a famous Black African American Visual Artists, on display for first time on the West Coast. 

I was truly honored and blessed to have one of my collage assemblage paintings showcased for the last week of this celebrated African American Fine Arts Legacy. Words cannot fully explain the powerful historical relevance of the 30 Americans Fine Arts Exhibit.

The opportunity to see exquisite original artwork made by Kara Walker, Kerry James Marshall and Kehinde Wiley was more than worth the 45 minutes ride from Seattle.
It was if I had reconnected with the spirit of creativity from our enslaved African ancestors as I walked through the museum and witnessed the creative energy in the building.

'American Theory' is also the first painting I have made this year in remembrance to the universal significance of the African Diaspora, as we honor Black African American History in the United States.
