The Cochran Collection

African American Works on Paper


African American Works on Paper Installation Photos

This is not an ordinary collection, and it is duplicated nowhere. This exhibition grew out of the love and the imaginative dream of Wes and Missy Cochran of La Grange, Georgia. They wanted to create a collection of prints reflective of African Americans which could primarily be displayed as an artistic, educational, and cultural presentation. The focus of these presentations is towards the deep South in institutions that rarely see this kind of work. The Cochran's collection is not an erudite statement about the African American experience, but it reveals the personal vision and joy of one couple who bring their enthusiasm, love, and deep feelings about African American art.

All the works were purchased for the Cochran's Collection over a two-year period Happily, these works are not destined for nice acid-free boxes in Wes's living room, but are here on display along with this beautiful catalog to be appreciated by all of us. These artists will welcome the development of a broader audience for their works.
