Hateful Things and More

From Aunt Jemima advertisements to the board game Ghettopoly, American popular culture is replete with racist images. The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia features an extensive collection of racist objects that trace the history of the caricaturing and stereotyping of African Americans. The museum, located at Ferris State University, is offering "Hateful Things," a traveling exhibition of these images to further the museum's mission of stimulating the scholarly examination of historical and contemporary expressions of racism, as well as promoting racial understanding and healing.

The current exhibition will also include a small selection of photographs from two recent donations to the museum: David Levinthal’s Blackface series and Bruce Davidson’s iconic civil rights images

An Army of Women

This ongoing series of work titled An Army of Women portrays women of all ages as the strong, intelligent and courageous beings they are.  Such women are often overlooked and underestimated within our culture's political structure, business and organizational leadership, and decision-making roles.  These paintings are meant to call out the visibility and the enormous value of capable women everywhere who possess the qualities of intelligence, wisdom, skill, knowledge and experience which translate to a true and lasting female beauty.  Watch this army grow...

Steve Barber Myths, Monsters, and Mystery

The unique style of Steve Barber’s encaustic scratchings is a gorgeous blend of rich color, texture, and form.  The exhibition Myths, Monsters, and Mystery is full of fierce and fantastical creatures inspired by Norse, Greek and Celtic mythology.  Barber brings these characters into our world to addresses timeless sociological issues such as greed, honor, trust, and many other profound conditions of the human experience.
