TRIBUTE TO THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE: WORKS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

Through May 29 in the Windows Gallery

Between 1920 and 1930 an outburst of creativity among African Americans occurred in every aspect of art. The Harlem area in New York City attracted a prosperous and stylish middle class of African Americans who were encouraged to celebrate their heritage; and as a result, Harlem became an artistic center.

Works from the Museum's collection by artists who were influenced by this important movement will be on display in conjunction with the February 14 special tribute programming focused on the Harlem Renaissance. Artists featured in the exhibit include Elizabeth CatlettRomare BeardenJacob LawrenceSharif BeyJuie Rattley III, Kara Walker and more. (Each artist's name links to an HMA blog post about that artist.)
