African American Art in the 20th Century

TAGS: Art Museum Contemporary Exhibit Gallery Gallery Opening Latin Lecture International Family Friendly Special Event Museum
Wed 9/25 - Sun 12/29

This exhibition presents nearly 50 paintings and sculptures by 32 African American artists from SAAM’s collection. These artists came to prominence during the period bracketed by the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights movement. The means of these artists varied—from modern abstraction to stained color to the postmodern assemblage of found objects—and their subjects are diverse.

African American Art in the 20th Century is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The C.F. Foundation in Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go.
