Black Is Beautiful

Artist: Tony Catteruccia

LOCATION: Overture Center for the Arts


Artist’s Statement:
“I painted this image, inspired by Angela Davis, to represent a powerful African American woman. Davis was one of the first African American women to represent herself in court and get all the charges dropped…The panthers symbolize beauty and black power…I tend to use colors that aren’t “skin tones.”
