The Sonja Haynes Stone Center is hosting Jackson’s exhibit, "La Sombra y el Espiritu IV: Figurative Visions and Collective Histories — The Work of Stefanie Jackson," until May 13.
Jackson's work explores important events in U.S. and African-American history, including the Atlanta race riots and the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans, said Joseph Jordan, the director of the Stone Center.

“Her work is figurative visions, because if you see her work, it’s really compelling in that way,” said Clarissa Goodlett, the program and public communications officer at the Stone Center. “It’s hard to describe these images unless you see them. There’s a lot happening in each painting.”
The exhibit is the fourth in a series entitled "La Sombra y el Espiritu."
