Queen: From the Collection of CCH Pounder
Opening: 28 January 2020
The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History
Featuring artwork by Africans, African-Americans, and artists from the Diaspora, the pieces on display in Queen are drawn from the personal collection of award-winning actress CCH Pounder, and span a range of styles and mediums.
Over the course of her long and distinguished career, Emmy-nominated Guyanese-American actress CCH Pounder has made a name for herself in more than just one discipline: her talents extend to the world of art collecting, too.
Featuring sculptures, paintings, and mixed media works by such luminaries as Betye and Alison Saar, Kehinde Wiley, and countless others. Pounder's robust collection celebrates black "feminine beauty, identity, and power," says a past review from New Orleans' Times-Picayune.
