Runs Through June 16, 2013

Larry and Brenda Thompson have amassed a remarkable collection of art by African Americans from around the nation. The strength of the Thompson's collecting process lies in their considered attention to artists who have typically not been recognized in the traditional narratives of African American art.

In addition to acknowledged "masters," the Thompsons have collected works by artists who have been labeled "emerging," "unknown," "outsider," "eccentric," "vernacular," "regional" and more. The result is a collection that redefines the landscape of American art, offering a more in-depth, inclusive understanding of African American artists and their aesthetic and social concerns. The Thompsons have not only identified and supported artists inside and outside of the canon, but they have also cultivated meaningful relationships with a variety of artists and their families that have lasted decades.

Tradition Redefined: The Larry and Brenda Thompson Collection of African American Art is organized by the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of the Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora at the University of Maryland, College Park. This exhibition is supported, in part, by a special fund from the Office of the President at the University of Maryland, College Park, and a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. The works are owned by Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia; The Larry D. and Brenda A. Thompson Collection of African American Art.

Anna Martin Fundraiser 

Karns Middle School 6th grade student Anna Martin is a cancer survivor who wants to help children going through cancer treatments.

Instead of receiving gifts for her birthday, she's asking for donations of new stuffed animals and toys for kids being treated at East Tennessee Children's Hospital.

Bring donations to Chick fil A at Turkey Creek and get a free chicken biscuit.

A "spirit night" is set for tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 to benefit Anna's cause.

Spirit Nights are the ultimate low-cost, no-effort fund-raiser! Just invite the community to eat Chick-fil-A® Chicken. Teachers, kids and families simply bring Spirit Night forms to the participating Chick-fil-A restaurant on your designated Spirit Night, and your group enjoys a share of the profits from that evening's sales.
