Charles McGee (born December 15, 1924 in Clemson, South Carolina) is an American artist. McGee moved to Detroit at the age of 10, where he found that “everything was on the move and it hasn’t slowed down yet.” McGee’s paintings, assemblages and sculptures are in prestigious national and international collections, and are on permanent display at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. His work is installed in public settings, foremost in the William Beaumont Hospital of Royal Oak, Michigan and the Broadway People Mover station.
