During their visit, the students viewed the exhibition, "30 Americans," which showcases works by many of the most important African American artists of the last three decades. This provocative exhibition focuses on issues of racial, sexual, and historical identity in contemporary culture while exploring the powerful influence of artistic legacy and community across generations.
Among the work in display were two photographs by Hank Willis Thomas ’94. Thomas is featured on the Corcoran website, describing some of his photography and his process.
