Paul Collins: World Visions
Holy Eagle, Native Americans, 1973
"World Visions," an exhibition by internationally renowned, self-taught Michigan artist Paul Collins will be on on display March 2 - 28, 1999, at the Saginaw Art Museum. The show consists of eleven works done in an array of different media. The Museum will also have an opening reception and Mr.Collins will discuss his work on Sunday, March 14, from 3 - 5 p.m.
Paul Collins, an African-American artist lives and works by his credo: "The survival of our world depends on our individual and collective participation to bring respect and dignity to human life, whatever our differences of culture or language. This cannot be accomplished as spectators. We must all become involved in the world struggle for human rights. The rock of bigotry and racism blocking the road must not be removed by bombs of war, or hate. Our progress towards a more civilized world depends only on destroying the rocks forever by human endeavors of understanding and compassion."
