The Way I See Reception & Black Swallowtail Book Launch
Duluth Art Institute
Hear directly from celebrated Minnesota artist & 2022 Guggenheim Fellow Ta-coumba T. Aiken at this combined reception, artist talk, and poetry book launch.
Aiken's energetic, evocative work shines in two formats: exhibited in Morrison Gallery in The Way I See, and sharing the page with nationally acclaimed poet Arleta Little in their joint publication, Black Swallowtail. The poetry book combines Little's poetry series with a selection of Aiken's paintings chosen to reflect the themes of mortality, ancestry, and beauty that swirl between word and image.
