Basketball and Chain by Hank Willis Thomas

No doubt you have heard of the fire that destroyed the home of noted art collector, Peggy Cooper Cafritz, in Washington, D.C. on July 29th. Among the 19th century paintings, works on paper, and sculpture are photographs by Hank Willis Thomas and Carrie Mae Weems. In a July 31st Washington Post article, Thomas credits Cooper Cafritz’s support of his own work and that of the school she helped found, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, where Thomas attended in 1991.  Cooper Cafritz’s collection is featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.
