Every other year, the Hudgens Center awards one Georgia artist the Hudgens Prize. That includes one solo exhibition and a $50,000 award.
Cosmo Whyte is one the four finalists. Originally from Jamaica, he is now an art professor at Morehouse College. As an artist, he isn't limited by medium: he draws, paints, photographs and does performance art. His art explores migration, home and outsiders.
The Hudgens Prize winner will be announced at the end of the month. In the meantime, the finalists have a group exhibition up at the Hudgens Center in Duluth.
"City Lights" producer Gabbie Watts spoke with Whyte about his work in advance of his artist talk tomorrow at 7 p.m. The talk will be alongside fellow prize finalist Lauri Stallings.
