Figures to Remember: The Human Form in Major African American Works

January 30, 2018 - February 25, 2018

For each of four weeks, this exhibit will feature a single and significant work of art by a major African American artist. Each artist, in their own voice, has used the human figure to illustrate and symbolize heritage, culture, and the African diaspora.

Each week, a new work from the FWMoA collection will be on view:

January 30 – February 4: Alison Saar, Lost Boys, 2008
February 6 – 11: Romare Bearden, The Carolina Memory (Tidings), 1973
February 13 – 18: Renee Stout, Marie Laveau, 2009
February 20 – 25: Jacob Lawrence, The 1920s…The Migrants Arrive and Cast Their Ballots, 1974
