Alabama State Univ. Alumni Display Civil Rights Artwork


By Heather VacLav

Using alumni artwork, Alabama State University opened up people's eyes to the importance of the Civil Rights.

The ASU Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture put out it's newest exhibit Sunday, "A tribute to ASU Art Legends." The exhibit featured the work of two former ASU art students.

Visitors were given insight into the work straight from the artists, one artists says there was no better muse for his art than history.

"I will say that my work is mostly narrative," said Dr. William Colvin, "It tells the story that gives the life of particular persons and historic events."

"It's a great honor for me to be selected," said John W. Feagin. "There were so many artists in the community and around the nation that she could of selected, but it's great honor for Colvin and myself to be here."

The exhibit is open to the public and will be on display until September 30th.

What a great honor to have these two awesome artists recognized. I had an opportunity to attend the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture at ASU because of an Art class I am taking Intro to Art with Charmaine Andrews...I now have a greater appreciation for Art as a result of it. So much work goes into the effort of Art and it is truly an honor to have seen some of these two Artists works; both John Feagin and Dr. William E. Colvin...great works, Congrats gentlemen!
