"Barkley L. Hendricks : Birth of Cool" on Youtube
If one word could ever describe the artistry and beauty of Barkley L. Hendricks works if would that of "cool." In his first ever career retrospective, Philidelphian born Hendricks is best known for his life-sized portraits depicting urban people from the urban northeast. His work expands from 1964 to present and still speaks to a wide audience today. Be sure to check out this exhibit before it ends; the information is listed below for the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.
