Painter and printmaker, Ruth Starr Rose (1887-1965), celebrated the lives of her African American neighbors, living in the tiny historical black towns of Copperville and Unionville, in Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
This is the first time in nearly a century that these works, along with the artist’s original notes, have been exhibited. Rose’s art truly expands our knowledge of the lives and histories of America’s earliest black communities.
