Black History Month in the Library includes Cade exhibit

Update | Tuesday, February 4, 2020

An exhibit by African-American artist Henry Cade, Jr. is on display in the Library’s first and second-floor galleries. Cade was born in Selma, Alabama and raised by his grandmother, who had a big impact on his life as an artist. Under her guidance and support, he recorded his community in pencil.

Cade moved to Columbus in 1963, where he attended East High School. In 1966 he joined the army and fought in Vietnam. While in the military, he attended Washington School of Arts in Minneapolis and the U.S. Army School at Ft. Meade, Maryland. Cade was also a student at the Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio Dominican University.

Cade said, “This exhibit is a memorial to friends of the arts who are no longer with us and who were a great influence in who I am as an artist today, including Kojo Kaumau, Ursel White Lewis, Joseph V. Canzani, Aminah Robinson, Roman Johnson, Elijah Pierce, Denny Griffith, and Barbara Chavous.”

The Cade exhibit will be on display until February 29.
