SCULPTURE BY LONNIE HOLLEY

After four months [of making art], I had made about a 100-odd pieces. I was so upset, because I hadn’t made any money or been to work, when my friend up the street named Miss Sarah Kelly called me to get some wood. I was crying, and she tapped me on the face and kissed me on the jaw and said, “You need to take your work to town and stop waiting on town to come to you.”

PERSONAL HISTORY: LONNIE HOLLEY
SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST, MUSICIAN AND WILD MIND ON GROWING UP IN THE SOUTH AND WHY MAKING ART MATTERS

There are more humans like me on earth. They just need an opportunity. The harvest is plentiful, but the harvesters are few. If these museums and galleries and all of these upper institutions cannot deal with our formula of art, our materials that we use, then there should be places and institutions created in America for us. We are just as important to America’s values as Picasso, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Matisse—any foreign artist. As Dr. King say, If I do not get off my horse to help this man, what will happen to this man? Now, move man out the way: if I do not do my art to help art, then what will happen to art?
