March 11, 2018

Organized by Willis Bing Davis, The Preacher, the Poet, the Vision is the 2018 Visual Voices exhibition featuring artworks addressing a socially relevant theme. This year’s exhibition was organized in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr, and the writing of Daytonian Paul Laurence Dunbar. From Davis’ statement: “The artists were challenged to create works of art inspired by the writings of Paul Laurence Dunbar that speaks to some of the same concerns that Dr. King lived and died for – concerns like freedom, justice, inequality, poverty and peace.”
