This exhibition features the stunning original artworks that illustrate Bryan Collier’s children’s books, By and By, about gospel composer Charles Albert Tindley, and We Shall Overcome, a celebration of the eponymous gospel anthem and Civil Rights protest song, I, Too, Am America, plus his latest book, Music is a Rainbow, inspired by the childhoods of Maya Angelou and Quincy Jones. Collier is a Caldecott Honor recipient and a nine-time Coretta Scott King Award winner. His unique illustrations combine watercolor and collage to bring African American historical figures to life.
The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival and the Talbot County Free Public Library and is partially supported by the Talbot County Arts Council and the Towns of Easton, Oxford, and St. Michaels.
