"The Strangest Fruit 9" is a contemporary meditation on the tragic oppression of minorities across the United States.
The McNay Art Museum announces the addition of Vincent Valdez’s The Strangest Fruit 9 to its collection. The painting is part of the artist’s The Strangest Fruit series featuring large-format oil paintings. The series takes its title from the 1937 poem, Strange Fruit by Abel Meeropool, made popular through a song by Billie Holiday in 1939. The original text addressed the hanging of black Americans; for his series, Valdez adapted the poem to reference the obscured history of Mexican American lynchings from the late 1800s to the 1930s.
