A celebration of creativity, painting, and community, Ta-coumba Aiken's exhibition "Call and Response" is an expansive call to artists, children, community members and museum visitors.

In addition to creating many new paintings for his exhibition, Aiken called to friends to collaborate with him. The show includes textiles made with Robin Getsug Taple, windows with Seitu Jones and William Slack, sound paintings with Carei Thomas, and ceramics with Peter Jadoonath. Their integrated responses show how working with others encourages inspiration and creates an expanded whole.
