Royce Harris Vaughn
ArtSeed’s Legacy Campaign spotlights founding members of ArtSeed’s Legacy Society, which began with Michelle Vignes’ gift of her house. This cottage became San Francisco’s only live-in artist residency program that also hosted students in the 2014 Summer Intensive period. On our field trip, we walked nearby to visit Royce Vaughn, an extraordinary African American artist and community activist still making art in what was to be the last year of his life. His widow and publicist, Judy Vaughn, gave us his art supplies, studio furniture, and more recently four large portraits of historic Black Statesmen to be used in an upcoming silent auction to benefit ArtSeed programs.
