David Driskell: Maine Master – David C. Driskell has been a primary conduit for bringing African American art into the mainstream of American society. He has done so through his own artwork and writings, teaching at various universities, and by organizing and curating exhibits by artists of color.

As a professor of art at the University of Maryland since 1977, Driskell has focused attention on black artists as they fight for survival and search for identity in the United States. Since 1977 Driskell has also served as the cultural advisor to Camille and Bill Cosby and is the curator of their collection.

In 2000, he was awarded the National Humanities Medal from President Clinton. Driskell maintains a deep connection to Maine, summering in Falmouth for nearly 50 years and remaining active at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture where he first went in 1953.

As he has said: “…. I went back to nature and relied very heavily on my natural environment as the source of inspiration in my work.” Maine has been that draw for him.
