Exhibition Opening-- Cisco Davis: Selected Works on the American Experience

Public Invited

ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Banneker-Douglass Museum will host a reception and artist talk from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., June 23, 2011 at the opening of Cisco Davis: Selected Works on the American Experience, artwork by Maryland based artist, Francisco “Cisco” Davis. Curated by J. Michael Powell, Curator of Exhibition the Banneker-Douglass Museum, this exhibition includes an assortment of 20 works that illustrate key milestones in African American history, as well as deep personal studies by the artist.  The exhibition includes paintings and mixed-media pieces.

Based in Baltimore, Cisco Davis developed his craft as an artist while serving in the United States Army and has continued his pursuit of a career in art as a commissioned artist.  His work shows clear influences from Cal Massey and classical inspiration from Rembrandt.  His stated primary goal with art is to educate the public.

“I believe art is life,” said Davis. “The simple things in life that we seem to ignore, the artist explores,” he added.

The general public is invited to attend the reception and to participate in a talk led by the artist. Both the events are free of charge and open to all ages. The exhibition will run at the Banneker-Douglass Museum from June 23, 2011 through September 10, 2011. The Banneker-Douglass Museum is dedicated to preserving Maryland’s African American heritage.  It is located at 84 Franklin Street, Annapolis, MD. 21401. Please contact J. Michael Powell, Curator of Exhibitions by June 20, 2011 to RSVP by email (jpowell2@goci.state.md.us) or by phone (410-216-6188).
