Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman

October 14 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

$6 – $12

Over the past forty years, acclaimed artist Jonathan Green and his partner and studio director, Richard Weedman, have amassed an astonishing collection of nearly 1,300 paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman presents a selection of forty-nine works of art from this significant private collection, offering a rare glimpse at the couple’s aesthetic interests and the artistic inspiration behind Green’s own artwork.

Building a Legacy explores the themes of work, love, belonging, and spirituality. Works in the exhibition portray tender moments between a parent and child, struggles for racial equality, pride in ancestral heritage, and strength derived through personal faith. The collection also expands the traditional notion of American art and identity, embracing a Pan American approach that goes beyond the United States to include art and artists of African, Caribbean, and Latin American descent. This approach provides a broader look at our nation’s history and a better understanding of what it means to be American today. In addition to Green’s own work the collection highlights include works by artists such as, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Charles White, David Driskell, Sam Gilliam, and Reynier Llanes.

This exhibition is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, Gibbes Museum Women’s Council, and ArtMag.
