In October the Ruth Starr Rose exhibition opened at Baltimore’s Reginald F. Lewis Museum. The exhibition, funded by the Maryland Humanities Council and presented by Brown Capital Management, features early-20th century portraits of African Americans by Rose, a white artist of privilege from the Eastern Shore. Here to tell us more about the artist and her important work is guest curator Barbara Paca.
