Little brown skin girl is a phrase that was commonly ‘tossed’ around in the family of artist Lia Nelson-James. It was used as a term of endearment as well as identification. This exhibit gives a voice to girls/women of color, telling stories or recounting a tale of positive perspective on the varied aspects of skin hues, hope and dreams yet to come.
This exhibit includes elections from the rich Herndon Davis (1901-1962) collection found in the Western History and Genealogy Department collections. Most of the paintings are watercolors of Denver's historic buildings as well as a couple from elsewhere in the state. Davis created portraits and storyboard drawings for newspapers making him not only an artists but a journalist as well.
