Visual Artists Who Inspire Eve L. Ewing: Book Display in Ellis Library

Dr. Eve L. Ewing, writer, artist, and scholar, will give a reading at Mizzou on Tuesday, February 27th as part of Black History Month 2018. On her Goodreads author page, she answers a question about her main influences with a list of writers and visual artists who have influenced her “in terms of not only style, but what it means to live as a writer in the world.”

On display now near the Research Help and Information Desk at Ellis Library are books about the five visual artists Ewing names as influences. Take a look at the work of photographer Carrie Mae Weems or Kerry James Marshall, known for his large paintings. If you enjoy installations, check out Glenn Ligon‘s neon works or Dan Flavin‘s work featuring fluorescent light bulbs. Perhaps you will be moved to learn about Kara Walker and other contemporary working artists.
