Daniel Minter’s Art

by Drew Dir in 2009/2010 Season, Sizwe Banzi is Dead

Maine-based artist Daniel Minter has designed the postcards for two Court shows this season, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and The Mystery of Irma Vep. Sizwe director and resident artist Ron OJ Parson brought Daniel to our attention, and now he’s returned to contribute art for the final show, Sizwe Banzi is Dead. Here’s a full image of Daniel’s original art, based on photographs shared by Ron of South African townships:

Sizwe Banzi is Dead runs Wednesdays through Sundays until June 13.
