"Fever With: The Art of Ronald Lockett" Public Celebration

Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.

Organized by the Ackland Art Museum, "Fever Within: The Art of Ronald Lockett" is a groundbreaking retrospective of a passionately inspired and little-understood figure in twentieth-century American art. The first solo exhibition of Ronald Lockett’s art, Fever Within emphasizes the powerful themes the artist explored over the course of his career through about 50 of his works of art.

"Fever Within" is curated by Bernard L. Herman, George B. Tindall Distinguished Professor of Southern Studies and Folklore at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in close collaboration with the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, an organization dedicated to documenting, researching, preserving, and exhibiting the work of vernacular African American artists of the American South.
