A prominent authority on black art,  curator, artist, and scholar, Driskell’s achievements have been described “as grand as Mount Everest” by journalist Keith Morrison. David was presented with a Presidential Medal of Honor in the Humanities and earned the Skowhegan Lifetime Legacy Award, both in 2016.

“David’s art, words, and actions were intertwined, inseparable, and inspirational to us in our daily lives and interactions with others.”
