David C. Driskell has been a primary conduit for bringing African American art into the mainstream of American society. He has done so through his own artwork and writings, teaching at various universities, and by organizing and curating exhibits by artists color.
This documentary highlights Driskell’s accomplishments and the inspiration he finds in Maine. As he has said: “… I went back to nature and relied very heavily on my natural environment as the source of inspiration in my work.” Maine has been that draw for him. 29 minutes.
