Shirley Woodson made her artistic debut in 1960 and in the decades since, her brilliant and intensely colorful paintings have been exhibited here, there, and everywhere. And at 85, her first one-woman show at the prestigious Detroit Institute of Arts, which happens to be her hometown museum, is the talk of ‘the town.’ The solo exhibition, “Shield of the Nile Reflections,” focuses on the river’s importance to civilization. We are so excited for you to meet and get to know this fascinating, accomplished, engaging creative heavyweight.
