Local Artist Steve Skipper to Present Powderly Library with Painting Focused on Bloody Sunday March
Interested in meeting a local artist internationally known for his college and professional sports-themed paintings? Steve Skipper was the first African American artist sanctioned to do artwork for the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, NASCAR, the Professional Bull Riders, and the PGA of America.
Mr. Skipper’s most recent work, DNA Ingrained, is his rendering of Bloody Sunday, the Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march that turned bloody after law enforcement attacked marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Skipper says, “I was so inspired to do this work to give everlasting visual honor to those who paid full price for our right to vote and be productive members of the American experience and society.”
Please join us on Friday, October 16, 10:00 a.m., at the Powderly Branch Library, as Steve Skipper presents a reproduction of DNA Ingrained to the Birmingham Public Library.
