Paul Rucker: Forever

Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Bainbridge Island, WA - To May 30

by Matthew Kangas

The museum has 13 new works in its permanent collection – from Paul Rucker’s FOREVER series. The multi-award-winning artist, formerly of Seattle, has applied his undisputed genius to commemorating the deaths of civil rights activists and other lesser-known African Americans in the form of giant postage stamps. The results are powerful. They include Four Little Girls, victims of a 1963 church bombing. Besides the Scottsboro Boys, Seattle Urban League director Edwin T. Pratt is honored. His murder Paul Rucker, FOREVER: Four Little Girls – was never solved.
