Looking for a place to observe Black History Month? The Brooklyn Museum galleries are ideal—in February or during any other month! Tune in all month as we spotlight African American artists from our collection American, Contemporary and Decorative art collections.

The career of Bob Thompson, the noted African American artist, was cut short by his early death at the age of twenty-eight. Thompson was born near Louisville, Kentucky, and studied at the University of Louisville and at Boston University. In the early and mid-1960s, he traveled throughout Europe and experienced many Renaissance paintings and other artworks firsthand. He fused the vigor and vibrancy of Expressionism with themes from Old Master compositions and the vivid palette of Fauve painting to create the original visual vocabulary exemplified by The Judgment. Recalling such time-honored Old Master subjects as the Last Judgment and the Judgment of Paris, here a nude male trio sits before faceless winged female angels while two figures (at left) await judgment. The planar, flattened figures and compositional contours in a gesturally applied background are all equally emphasized.

#24 The Pope Lick Monster

The Pope Lick Monster is a frightening creature reported to live beneath a Norfolk Southern Railway trestle over Pope Lick Creek, in the Fisherville area of Louisville, Kentucky. It is a half human, half goat, half sheep monster that lures victims to their deaths.

Numerous theories abound about its origins… A demon? A science experiment gone wrong? Nevertheless, there IS a very real danger posed to people that visit the Pope Lick Trestle bridge! Few people who go looking for the beast are aware that the railroad is still an active train area, and if you’re caught on the tracks when a train is barreling down at you, there’s little choice of escape.

There is an 8 foot fence around the bridge to discourage visitors, but many people have still died on it. Under no circumstance should anyone explore this bridge, Pope Lick Monster or not.
