This exhibition presents work from the 2018 class of inductees to the Sisters of Creativity. The art collective takes its cue from the legacy of Mrs. Dorothy Nelle Sanders (1917–2013), who founded the African-American Arts Alliance and advocated for diversity in the arts. The six featured artists—all Milwaukeeans—are Blanche Brown, Chrystal Denise Gillon, Rhonda Gatlin Hayes, Ruthie Joy, Tia Richardson, and 2019 City of Milwaukee Artist of the Year Rosemary Ollison. While the artists vary in formal training and choice of media, they are united in purpose: championing social justice and civil rights, giving voice to the voiceless, expressing spirituality, and coping with trauma.
