Tulsa museum acquires work by Lawton artist Robert Peterson
The Lawton Constitution
The piece, entitled “Tomorrow’s SuperHERo,” is a 60-by-60-inch oil painting on canvas depicting a young Black girl posed in front of her family. It is an image that is typical of Peterson’s work. Peterson is known for this realistic depiction of Black families and individuals that reveal the softness and vulnerability of the lived Black experience that Peterson believes has been underrepresented.
