In the early days of his career, Adams focused on monumental sculptures for alternative art spaces. Nearly all of Adams’ work implores a visual movement of avant-garde expressionist abstract. His colorful, expressive workmanship reflects a life’s journey with a specialty collection that embodies Washington DC’s rich history and culture.
In 2011, he received the Artist of the Year award by the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA). Adams received the East of the River Distinguished Artist Award presented by Honfleur Gallery and the Gautier family in 2012. Adams’ Blue Horse sculpture is a permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). He has exhibited at Honfleur Gallery, Smithsonian Institution Museums, American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center, among others.
