The Donald P. Sowell Endowment Committee (Sowell Committee) was established in 1993 as a tribute to Donald P. Sowell (1929-1989), an important Cincinnati artist and art educator. The Sowell Committee promotes greater interaction and involvement of the African American community with the Cincinnati Art Museum. In doing so they oversee an endowment in Mr. Sowell’s name and act as a recommending body for the disbursements of its funds to promote African American art, programs, exhibitions and other art forms of interest to the African American community. The Sowell Committee also provides educational and social fundraising activities that benefit the endowment and the museum.

Ms. Price will share examples of her printmaking and speak about her motivation, concept, and process. In much of her creative work, she uses portions of her family photographs to locate her identity and acknowledge the pull the past exerts on the present. Other series use motifs drawn from nature which signals themes of loss, memory and longing.
We will keep everyone updated to any changes that we may have to make due to social distance requirements.
