Vibrant Vision Traveling Collection

Selections from the Collection managed by Jonathan Green Studios, LLC

For the past 38 years Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman have had the privilege of incorporating into their fine art collection paintings, sculptures, and fine art prints from outstanding African Diaspora and African American Artists into their international art collection titled Vibrant Vision. With few exceptions the collection reflects the themes of work, love, belonging and spirituality. This section of the Vibrant Vision Collection has a particular focus on art created by artists who worked from the late 1930s (the period of the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration) to the present throughout the Caribbean and America..

William S. Carter (1909-1996) was a nationally recognized and awarded artist, who lived on Chicago's southside for most of his life. Carter was a master of all painting mediums and contributed extensively to the African-American art culture of Chicago.

William Sylvester Carter was born in St. Louis, MO in 1909. In 1930, he moved to Chicago and began studying art at the School of the Art Institute and at the University of Illinois. He showed his works nationally throughout the 1940s - in 1940, at Howard University Gallery of Art with Charles White, and in 1942 at the First Annual Exhibition of Paintings, Sculptures and Prints by Negro Artists at Atlanta University. By 1943, he had joined the WPA in Illinois with Charles White, Eldzier Cortor, Earl Walker and Charles Davis. Carter's works are found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the DuSable Museum of African American History and the South Side Community Art Center, all in Chicago.
