salute: February 22nd…Kara Walker


Kara Walker is ART.

Her haunting yet whimiscal works are known for challenging the images of slaves and women in the Civil War south.

While Kara is a modern artist, she reminds us of where we came from. She grabs history by the  throat and beautifully executes the ugly side of history. I feel like I cannot eloquently put her arts into words. Please check her out!
