"…Precisely at this historical moment, when multicultural democracy is the order of the day, Photography can be be used as powerful weapon toward instituting political and cultural change. I for one will continue to work towards this end."—-Carrie Mae Weems 

The 28th of August will mark the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s heroic “I have a Dream” speech. In these times of an historic African American President and the realities of Justice exposed by the Trayvon Martin case, I am thankful that we have artists like Ms. Weems fearlessly confronting the complexities of race, gender and class in our American culture.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is presently featuring a major (and deserved) retrospective of her work, titled “Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video.” The retrospective will be up until the 29th of September, and for anyone in the area, is a must-see. If you’re unfamiliar with Carrie Mae Weems’s body of work and her contributions, now is an opportunity to look through her eyes and see what’s been going on “from sea to shining sea.”  —Lane Nevares
