FORCES OF ARTISTIC CHANGE

Share

Horace Pippin, Archibald John Motley, Jr., and Aaron Douglas

Tuesday, May 9 @ 6:00 pm

Join Artscapades for a look at the lives and art of three African American artists who worked in the early 20th century, the time of the Great Migration. Pippin, Motley, Jr., and Douglas were part of the beginnings of an intellectual and cultural renaissance of African American art, music, dance, fashion, theater, literature, and politics centered in Harlem in the 1920s and ’30s.

The event is free to members and $5 for all others. (Payment will be collected at the entrance.) Refreshments will be served.
