      KERRY JAMES MARSHALL (1955 - )
      South Central Los Angeles Folklife Festival.

      Linoleum cut printed in black and buff ink, 1981. 813x483 mm; 32x19 inches (sheet). With the "Los Angeles Bicentennial 1781 - 1981, Robinson & Associates Bi-Centennial L.A. 200 Committee" ink stamp, lower left and "Partially funded by Arco and the National Endowment for the Arts", ink stamp in the lower right.

      This linoleum cut by Kerry James Marshall is a very scarce example of his early printmaking. Organized by Beverly Robinson in 1981, the South Central Los Angeles Folklife Festival was part of the city's bicentennial celebration in which Robinson documented black life in inner cities and highlighted black dolls and puppets celebrating African-American culture. The same year Marshall had his first solo exhibition at Los Angeles Southwest College in Los Angeles.
