W.E.B. DuBoisDark Water:
Recital in Four Dominions

A Recital in Four Dominions is on current exhibit at the Arthur Ross Gallery, the exhibition gallery of the University of Pennsylvania, December 14, 2002-March 2,2003.
In tribute to W.E.B. DuBois, Penn faculty artist and Professor, Terry Adkins designed the Darkwater exhibit. Adkins examines DuBois and his work by way of four "dominions": sculpture, prints, documents, and music, all of them relating to DuBois' literary output and contributions.

" Darkwater" further celebrates 30 years of African American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where DuBois was awarded a fellowship in 1895 to conduct a research project in Philadelphia's impoverished seventh ward. The result was " The Philadelphia Negro" one of his most recognized works.
