Jefferson Pinder's work has recently been written about in a series undertaken by Sanguine Gallery.
Through engaging the historical references, research, and community involvement present in Pinder's exhibition, Niama Safia Sandy asks: "Is the past ever truly apart from us? Or is it more like a haint - a spectre hanging in the air vying for us to attend matters left unsettled?"
By focusing on the communities' self description of the areas around the Figge Museum, Mariah Shevchuk observes: "Depending on who you ask, the City of Davenport and the Quad Cities could be in two different hemispheres, let alone part of a single metropolitan area that straddles the same river. Similarly, asking one resident about the area’s history of race relations will garner a completely different answer than asking another—divergent views emerge depending on where in the Quad Cities the respondent lives, as well as their age, gender, race and personal experiences."
