press: Larry walker, artist

Larry M. Walker, the highly acclaimed visual artist, art professor, mentor, and father of artist Kara Walker, mixes painting, drawing, collage, and various materials in the process of creating his unforgettable work.


The Judith Alexander Foundation was honored to support Walker's two part retrospective exhibition at MOCA GA in 2018, specifically, fully funding a film by filmmaker Felipe Barral documenting this monumental exhibition.  


In 2009, Walker was among the 7 Atlanta artists who received the Artadia Atlanta Award, funded in part by The Judith Alexander Foundation.
