At the California African American Museum, the exhibition The Ease of Fiction highlights the work of four contemporary African artists living in the United States whose work serves as a foundation for discussions around history, fact and fiction.
In particular the work of Meleko Mokgosi in Democratic Intuition, Exordium (2014-2015) examined the relationship between education, labor and democracy. In the details below you will see the skill and mastery of this master painter whose work details the denial of opportunities for intellectual labor.

In the beginning of March I attended the 2013 National Art Education Association Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. It was full of inspiration and lessons to carry into the rest of the calender year. With the theme of “Drawing Community Connections”, art educators could choose from hands on workshops, research lectures, inspirational sessions, award ceremonies, exhibitor hall, live demonstrations, and a plethora of other choices.
