Tucked inside the University of Washington School of Art is the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, a hidden gem that features one of the city's most innovative and dynamic exhibition schedules. In 2015, the gallery established the Jacob Lawrence Legacy Residency in order to dedicate every February—Black History Month—to artists and ideas of the African diaspora. This year's residency honors the 100th anniversary of Jacob Lawrence's birth. The featured artist is 2014 Stranger Genius C. Davida Ingram, whose exhibition A Book with No Pages promises to engage community organizers, artists, and healers in radical acts of imagination and solidarity.
