TMA celebrating new selection of artwork

TMA is celebrating a new selection of artwork installed in Gallery 1 by TMA’s new curator of modern and contemporary art, Jessica Hong. The museum is also highlighting TMA staff’s responses to these works of art. This week's Art Minute features Nuanced Veil by artist   with staff commentary from Ijonte Hall, Social Media and Digital and Communications Specialist.

"Nuanced Veil by artist Joyce Scott is one of the pieces nearest to my heart in the Toledo Museum of Art collection. Each figure tells me its own story. Scott depicts hope, triumph, sorrow, fear, and death in this piece.

I see my story when I look at Nuanced Veil. Many African Americans probably recognize their story. I think of my ancestors, whose names and stories I don’t know, who probably made the treacherous journey with Harriet Tubman on the Underground Railroad. I think of those who made it safely up north, and those who lost their lives so close to freedom." -Ijonte Hall

Joyce J. Scott (born 1948, Baltimore, MD), Nuanced Veil. Seed beads, wire, and thread, 2008–17. 30 ½ x 60 in. Purchased with funds from the Florence Scott Libbey Bequest in Memory of her Father, Maurice A. Scott, by exchange, 2018.36. On view in Gallery 1.
