In the exhibition Leaving Mississippi – Reflections on Heroes and Folklore, Dorsey’s Mississippi Delta roots emerge as he pays homage to a cast of colorful characters, historic events, and conditions of Southern life while creating commentary about current economic and social conditions in America. The mixed-media works in the exhibition showcase a number of the heroes of the civil rights movements, participants of civil disobedience in the early 20th century, and folklore legends including Dangerfield Newby, Bass Reeves, and Robert Charles. The work combines themes that have interested Dorsey for the past few years: journeys that people embark upon as they search for a better life, and the resistance of those who stay where they are to fight the powers that be. The artist uses a variety of materials, including photographic imagery, ripped paper, paint and found objects. Each composition blends multiple textures, colors, and layers to make the stories tangible for viewers. <a href="http://www.columbusmuseum.com">www.columbusmuseum.com</a> Asian Arts Initiative - Rick Lowe Pearl Street Residency - Part 1 tag:blackartinamerica.com,2014-09-17:6557594:Video:334834 2014-09-17T14:09:05.948Z Black Art In America http://blackartinamerica.com/profile/0zykfp76v4hu4 <a href="http://blackartinamerica.com/video/asian-arts-initiative-rick-lowe-pearl-street-residency-part-1"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/tBTKCkFUMvMQi81qPZJhz4z2An0PSsLGulfNKTwk9WkpEInrdqmqekQA493Nsccpcn3NWXywDgyiGBnYHJ0V8I3CUNe3z*V6/1082211333.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Since January, Rick Lowe has been in residency with Asian Arts Initiative in an effort to make streets safer. <a href="http://blackartinamerica.com/video/asian-arts-initiative-rick-lowe-pearl-street-residency-part-1"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/tBTKCkFUMvMQi81qPZJhz4z2An0PSsLGulfNKTwk9WkpEInrdqmqekQA493Nsccpcn3NWXywDgyiGBnYHJ0V8I3CUNe3z*V6/1082211333.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Since January, Rick Lowe has been in residency with Asian Arts Initiative in an effort to make streets safer.
