Paul Rucker: FOREVER
BIMA shares new acquisitions to the Permanent Art Collection — thirteen works from Rucker’s FOREVER series, shown previously at Greg Kucera Gallery. These poignant artworks acknowledge civil rights martyrs that have not, and will probably never appear on US Postage Stamps. They include Four Little Girls, victims of the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, and Edwin T. Pratt, former Executive Director of the Seattle Urban League, who was murdered in 1969 at his home. Rucker’s work will anchor a larger group show, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., featuring artists addressing social justice (January 10 – 25, MESA & Lovelace Galleries).
