They Came Before Columbus VI , 2007 James E. Newton (1941–2022) Ink and acrylic on board, sheet: 12 × 16 inches.

As a painter, printmaker, scholar, and professor, James Newton wore many hats throughout his life before passing away in 2022.

He left behind a diverse catalog of art, one that you can now experience at the Delaware Art Museum’s new exhibition “The Artistic Legacy of James E. Newton: Poetic Roots.”

In Arts Playlist, Delaware Public Media’s Karl Lengel is joined by Delaware Art Museum Head Curator and Curator of American Art Margaret Winslow to learn more about Newton and the exhibit.
