Of the works shown at the museum, my favorite pieces are "Rumble", "Black Steel In the Hour of Chaos" and most notably, "New Negro Escapist and Athletic Club". The creativity that fueled the development of each of the pieces illustrated just how thoughtful and deliberate of an artist Johnson is. His tribute to life growing up by using everyday household items typically found around the home is a clever way of establishing a signature modus operandi. As a member of a Greek-lettered organization myself, I can also empathize with his fascination of secret societies and I believe he executed the fictional hall of members' photos very effectively. Each of these pieces are best experienced in person as they each took advantage of the viewers' proximity to give the work an enhanced perspective; especially "Black Steel In The Hour of Chaos". It made for an excellent structure to begin the tour.
Overall, I was impressed by the story of how Johnson evolved into the artist he has become today. I look forward to following his career as it continues to take shape and gain even more steam.
