KIA ARTbreak presents Ulysses Marshall

ARTbreak, the free weekly lecture series offered by the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, presents "Remembering From Where I Came," with artist Ulysses Marshall. As a returning Vietnam veteran (U.S. Army), Marshall used art as a means of healing and affirmation. Vietnam, he said, is "a place where I found and lost myself."

Drawing inspiration from childhood memories in the rural South, Marshall creates paintings that offer a poetic entry into the African-American experience. "My art is an expression and extension of my grandmother's quilts," said Marshall. "Without her, color and pattern would not exist for me." Join the artist as he discusses his work, a selection of which is currently on display at the Art Center of Battle Creek.

ARTbreak is free of charge and open to everyone. Coffee and cookies are provided, and participants are invited to bring their own lunch.
