The King Arts Complex has "unveiled" a new permanent interactive installation about the transfer of slaves from Africa to the Americas entitled "Cargo: The Middle Passage". When visitors view this installation they will be able to experience what life might have been like inside of a slave ship.
The exhibit is centered around and features three of Ron's paintings. Ron painted three panels included in a triptych entitled "Cargo" that measure 93"x48" (wxh) per panel. The paintings depict the interior of a slave ship and are oil paintings on canvas.
Ron's paintings are now included in the permanent art collection of The King Arts Complex. The Opening day reception was on September 22, 2005.
Ron participated in the Absolut Spirits Company, "Absolut Expressions" celebration of 14 African-American Artists. The Art collection featured original artwork commissioned for the exhibit. The 2002 event was the 3rd art collection commissioned by the Absolut Spirits Company.
The featured artists and an image of their artwork was showcased in several issues of the Savoy magazine. The Art collection tour included VIP Receptions in the following cities:
