From Here I Saw What Happened and Cried (c. 1995-96) reflects photographer Carrie Mae Weems' most
crucial concern as an artist: to retrace forgotten or covered-up histories. In this particular body of work,
Weems was granted access to an archive of photos that examined the African American as subject matter.
Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video will be on display at The Cleveland
Museum of Art starting June 30. 

I hope today's links remind you how vital art is to life. As English art critic John Ruskin so eloquently said, "Life without labor is guilt. Labor without art is brutality."
