Emmy-nominated NCIS: New Orleans actress CCH Pounder has made a name for herself in more than just one discipline: her talents extend to the world of art collecting, too.
QUEEN: From the Collection of CCH Pounder, features sculptures, paintings and mixed media works by such luminaries as Harmonia Rosales, Betye and Alison Saar, Kehinde Wiley, and more.
Previously on display at Xavier University, Sarah Clunis, the school’s gallery director says: “[QUEEN] opens up a conversation about art and women…For black women to be able to enter a museum and have a conversation about fine art and to be able to see themselves in it, that’s important.”
Watch as CCH Pounder discusses how she uses art as an agent for activism in the video below:
