​Join us for the captivating journey of Dox Thrash, a visionary artist whose pioneering spirit impacted the world of printmaking. “Imprint: Dox Thrash Black Life, and American Culture” our new exhibition invites you to explore the life and artistic legacy of Thrash, from his  beginnings in Griffin, Georgia, to his groundbreaking contributions to the art world.

​Born in 1893, Thrash’s journey from a artist to a trailblazer in printmaking is a testament to his resilience and creativity. Despite leaving school after the fourth grade, Thrash pursued his passion for art through correspondence courses and eventually found himself immersed in the vibrant art scene of Chicago before settling in Philadelphia where he would spend the rest of his life developing his artistic practice

Thrash’s experiences as a Buffalo Soldier, a performer on the Black Vaudeville circuit, and an art student in Chicago all left an indelible mark on his work. “Imprint” delves into Thrash’s diverse influences and showcases rarely-seen works that offer a glimpse into his personal narrative.
