A series of his portraits are installed in collaboration with artists Danielle Abrams and Mary Ellen Strom in their exhibition "Rights Along The Shore", an exploration of the legacy of segregated recreation sites currently on view at STABLE Arts in Washington, D.C. and The Mills Gallery in Boston, MA.
Nichols’ current project, “Gone By The Way of Fat Sam,” is an exploration of Smoketown: Louisville, Kentucky’s oldest Black neighborhood built by emancipated slaves in the 1860s. This work is part of the MFA thesis show at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) at Tufts University and is on view from May 5 - 15 at the Tufts University Art Gallery.
