Art of This World: Janel Jefferson


Artist Janel Jefferson talks about her use of photographs from the 19th and 20th century to create colorful and haunting painted portraits that give life to the past and show that records are like gifts from the past to the present and future. The video is from the Juneteenth Jamboree site on Kiru.
