      *World Premiere*

      Art, light, and friendship tell the story of celebrated, Knoxville borne, African-American painter Beauford Delaney, who left the segregated South for the heady freedom of the Harlem Renaissance and Bohemian Paris. Famous singers, actors, writers, and other artists adored him. Foremost among them was his ‘spiritual son’ writer, James Baldwin, who credits his beloved mentor with teaching him how to live, learn, and see. This gentle, frequently suicidal soul, though plagued by poverty and schizophrenic voices, still filled hundreds of bright canvases with joy and hope. His journey out of darkness is a splendid testament to the courage of a gifted man who found in the mystical marriage of color and shape the healing grace of love.
