The New York Times, Art Review, on 2 September was about a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art called 'Provocative Visions: Race and Identity'. The mask sculpture on the left was created out of shoes. "Seven contemporary African-American artists brings to light an intriguing dichotomy between the visual and the verbal" (Ken Jonson). One of the artists is Kara Walker, whose silhouettes have been seen at the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington as well as the Seattle Art Museum.
