From The Tuscaloosa News:
The Paul R. Jones Gallery’s exhibit “Migration,” on display through April 19, showcases art that illustrates the effects of mass movements of people to different locations.
The exhibit features works from the permanent Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art. The collection is made up of 1700 pieces valued at $5 million, which were donated in 2008 by Paul R. Jones, an Alabama native and collector of African-American art.
A committee of University of Alabama faculty, made up of members of the Black Faculty and Staff Association, wanted to exhibit works that were relevant to a variety of different disciplines.
