The Cary Beth Cryor Gallery of Coppin State University presents Legacy, an art exhibit celebrating the life and work of Dr. Luke A. Shaw (1928 - 1997), scholar, artist, and a founding member of the Coppin State University Department of Visual and Performing Arts.  This intimate exhibition of Shaw's innovative paintings also features the work of Ernest Shaw, a Coppin instructor and nephew of Luke Shaw, who has created a striking portrait of his uncle specifically for this exhibit. Together, these diverse and important works honor our history and break new ground for the legacy of Coppin State University.

This exhibition was organized by the Coppin State University Department of Visual and Performing Arts, thanks to generous loans of important works of art from the collection of the James E. Lewis Museum of Art, Morgan State University, and private collectors Robbye Apperson, and Troy Staton.

Legacy will be on exhibit through April 29.   For additional information and to arrange gallery tours, contact Dr. Judith Willner at jwillner@coppin.edu or at 410-951-3371.
