Remembering Rondo at WAM

Rose and Melvin Smith: Remembering Rondo (through September 8). Currently living in Eagan, Minnesota, Rose and Melvin Smith were residents of St. Paul’s Rondo neighborhood for many years. The Smiths’ art consists of urban scenes and portraits that present realist, expressionist, and at times allegorical takes on Black life in America. The works in this exhibition are drawn from their Rondo series –– a sprawling body of work that stands as an elegiac anthem for that lost neighborhood and the enduring community that lives on in its wake.
