In The Tower: Kerry James Marshall

An exhibition of the work of Kerry James Marshall on view now at the National Gallery of Art is remarkable for two reasons. First, he's one of the most celebrated artists working today. His paintings reflect darkly on an American dream viewed through the lens of the African-American experience. The show is also noteworthy because it's the first solo show of a living African-American artist organized by the gallery. We speak with the artist and an art critic.
