Grandpa Morgan Tuskeegee Airmen

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My work for this year is a commemorative piece about my grandfather who was a Tuskegee airmen in WWII. I have researched his war record, images of the P-51 Mustang airplane he flew and even located an audio recording he made of his "memorable experiences in WWII." http://youtu.be/i6TwXfx1dHM From this research I have created a large ink on fabric drawing of him in uniform next to his airplane the P-51 mustang. It is 9ft x 5ft . Completed entirely freehand this is a ballpoint pen drawing on stretched cotton. I hope to celebrate his memory and tell his story through the exhibition of this piece in the artprize event.

This is an audio recording of my grandfather Woodrow Morgan recounting his experience in WWII accompanied by music and photos. http://youtu.be/i6TwXfx1dHM
