All have been in storage, I removed them from the packaging, some may have bent corners or may need a little touching up before framing, one has wrinkled paper in one area, can be wet mounted to art board, some Framers may even “iron” them out, please ask for full description before buying

The originals are in the Portland Community College libary and can be viewed here, I have 11 of the set of 12, I'm Missing one only. all have minor issues but can most can be covered by matting, I'll be listing others in the near future,

One of Clarence's well known works is The Black Airman,” outside the Cadet Chapel at the Air Force Academy.




In addition to being a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, Mr. Shivers was also a very accomplished artist and a philanthropist – giving back as he was prospered. He especially motivated, helped and encouraged young artists who revered him as a grandfather figure. His trailblazing can-do attitude endeared him to everyone who knew him. He died in 2007 at the age of 83 in Colorado Springs, CO having been married to his wife Peggy, who is an operatic soprano as well as a music teacher, for 37 years. The legacy Dr. Shivers left his family and the world is TREMENDOUS! One of his seminal works was a series that he was commissioned to do on the Civil Right’s era. Our auction features 11 of the 12 signed artist’s proofs from this body of work. Here is the artist’s statement regarding the esteem with which he regarded this commission:

"One has to admire the quiet dignity and steadfast determination in the nonviolent efforts of Black Americans to right the wrongs of America. The fight for freedom cannot be won once and for all in a single decisive battle. The struggle is a never ending one. The commission to produce the Civil Rights artwork is a highlight in my artistic career. It has allowed me to meet and relive the experiences of some of the most important people in the world. I love you and with this artwork, I salute you."
