What people are saying:

The Los Angeles blacksmiths were the first artworks we saw, and they left a deep impression on people. They portrayed characters in various careers, including a figure with a heavy burden on the head, and these characters illustrate many aspects of life. Kendell Carter's high-frequency equipment shows a golden seeder. "Colored Waiting" by Roy Ferdinand depicts a lost man waiting for a bus at a bus stop. Many works portray modern life. Jimmy Lee Sudduth's New York and Sam Doyle's St. Helena's "Black Merry Go Rond" "And other selected paintings have attracted people's attention. Robert Howell's "Little Animals" and Dominique Moody's "Ancestors Praise Room" are great mixed media works. Commercialization of hip-hop is another exhibition. Similarly, some introduction videos are being recorded.
