James Phillips: Swirling Complexity Into Culture

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Arts Program cordially invites you to a new exhibition by Baltimore-based visual artist James Phillips. Phillips is an exceptional artist who meticulously produces colorful works that broaden one’s understanding of African aesthetics, patterns and symbols by incorporating these cultural references into contemporary compositions.

He describes himself as a product of the Black Power movement, which encouraged African American artists to create works that reflected pride in their history and culture. His works are in many public and private collections throughout the United States. Phillips received his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and is an associate professor of art at Howard University.

Funding for this project was provided by the Wolpoff Family Foundation; Maryland State Arts Council; Friends of the Arts Program; and Eva J. Allen, Ph.D., and Nicholas H. Allen, DPA.
