William Edmondson was the first black artist to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York in 1937. He grew up near Nashville, Tennessee. Edmondson’s father, George, died when he was quite young and his mother Jane became a farm worker to support the family. With a belief that his work was inspired by God, Edmondson began carving tombstones and later expanded his work to include sports heroes, animals, birdbaths, and figures from the Bible.
