"Something to Say" is the first survey of modern and contemporary African American art to be presented at the McNay. Drawn primarily from the collection assembled by Harriet and Harmon Kelley over nearly three decades, "Something to Say" presents more than 50 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and photographs by a wide range of 20th and 21st-century artists. Featuring work by iconic figures such as Charles Alston, Elizabeth Catlett, Lois Mailou Jones, Jacob Lawrence, Hughie Lee-Smith, Norman Lewis, Horace Pippin, and Charles White, the exhibition and its related programs allow visitors to reflect upon a broad range of African American experiences, and examines the ways different African American artists have expressed personal, political, and racial identity over approximately 100 years.
