Mary Proctor (American, born 1960), First African American Family and President in the White House, 2008- 2016, paint and mixed media on wood, 92 x 39 inches,, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, gift of Carl and Marian Mullis, 2018.188. © 2021 Mary L. Proctor. 

Florida-based artist Mary Proctor began using doors as surfaces for her paintings after losing family in a house fire. This tragic event was a turning point in her life and motivated her feverish production of art on all sorts of architectural and other found surfaces. This celebratory door painting is a tribute to the first African American US president and his family through bright, patriotic color splashes and riffs on President Obama's signature motto, "Yes, We Can."

This bookmark was specifically designed for the Obama Portraits Exhibition at the High Museum.
