I am so grateful tonight for the Seattle Art Museum’s generosity in comping tickets for the museum’s special Kehinde Wiley exhibit last week to my drawing class. In all my years of bringing students to the museum, never has there been such excitement. I mean there were eye-balls popping out of heads. There were tongues dragging on the ground. There was swooning. And although Kehinde Wiley himself isn’t a religion (though clearly a talent of mythic proportions) there were more than a few converts!
Here are a handful of my very favorite Art 111 and Art 112 drawings inspired by Wiley’s unbelievably stunning work!
