While Norman’s work is said to be concerned with social injustice, inequality, and conflict, it is equally about love, transformation, and self-reflection.

African-American artist Joseph Norman is a Chicago native whose lithographs mesmerize the viewer with an exploration of dark human emotion and raw commentary on black life in America. The Art of Joseph Norman introduces two complete print portfolios: Out at Home: The Negro Baseball League, Volume I, and Patti’s Little White Lies. While Norman’s work is said to be concerned with social injustice, inequality, and conflict, it is equally about love, transformation, and self-reflection. The series are gifts from collectors Kerry and Betty Davis and Donnell and Dorothea Walker of Pennsylvania through the efforts of Delores Logan. Norman is currently a professor of drawing and painting at the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art in Athens, Georgia.
