Howard Smith: African American Artist in Finland

In the early 1960s, African American artist Howard Smith made the move to Finland to escape the racism and lack of professional opportunities he faced in his home country. Relentlessly creative, he worked in a wide variety of media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and textile and paper collage. In this talk, Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Bobbye Tigerman examines Smith's life as well as his many contributions to Nordic art and design.
