As an artist, David C. Driskell has used many media to great effect in exploring the subjects of nature and culture, African and African American heritage, spirituality, family, and sociopolitics. As a scholar and educator, he has probably done more than anyone else to establish the study of African American art within the canon of all American art scholarship. His scores of awards and honors include, perhaps most notably, the National Humanities Medal. In 2001, the University of Maryland opened the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of the African Diaspora in honor of his tenure there.
