Over the years many talented people have passed through the doors of the historic Smithfield Library. During Black History Month this year, we spotlighted and thanked some of the generous artists who have donated their works.
Reverend Clyde Carter, sometime referred to as the Michelangelo of Birmingham, has pieces on display at the prestigious Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. His bas relief pieces in copper of the Smithfield Library and Parker High School were generous and beautiful donation.
Joe Minter is a nationally known, self-taught, visionary artist who works with all kinds of found objects to create multimedia sculpture. He uses his artwork to spread the knowledge of God, and to make political statements as well. His whimsical art donated from his famous African Village are real treasures for our library.
Shirley Ramsey is a retired Birmingham Public Library Paraprofessional whose works are in primarily oil pastels. Her main subject matter is African Americans who have made significant contributions to society. We appreciate the beauty of her artistry and her generosity of spirit.
