History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence

February 13 - August 5, 2018
Gladys Gracy Harn Exhibition Hall

This exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of influential American artist Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000). Lawrence was primarily concerned with the narration of African American experiences and histories. His acute observations of community life, work, struggle and emancipation during his lifetime were rendered alongside vividly imagined chronicles of the past. The past and present in his work are intrinsically linked, providing insight into the social, economic and political realities that continue to impact and shape contemporary society today.
