If you happened to wander into the Chazen Museum of Art this summer, you might have seen an exhibit featuring artist, Sandford Biggers.

Upon entering the exhibit, you’d quickly realize that he’s talented in a number of mediums, including, but not limited to, sculpting, video, and painting.

According to the Chazen website, Biggers uses his artwork “to encourage meaningful dialogue around narratives in American history.”

This exhibition contains pieces from his BAM series, video installation, and textile collage. Each sculpture in the BAM series is named after a victim of brutality, including Terence Crutcher and Michael Brown.

If you’d like to check out the exhibit, it runs through Sept. 22.
