Jon Onye Lockard
Jon Onye Lockard – painter, portraitist, muralist, educator and illustrator – has been an artist for over
fifty years. Born in Detroit, Professor Lockard currently resides in Ann Arbor and is a senior lecturer at the U-M Department of Afroamerican & African Studies and Professor Emeritus at Washtenaw Community College. The very realistic images found in Lockard's brilliant acrylics are centered on black history. Stories unfold as you view his detailed works, and as Lockard's states, "everyone has a story to tell – make them hear you." He makes a conscious effort to paint strong, positive images of African Americans often cloaked in African fabrics, symbols and signs. Lockard's work is in private collections and museums throughout the country.
