Examining An Artist's Agenda

When: Fri., Dec. 12 2014

Jacob Lawrence is widely considered one of the greatest modern African-American artists. The Cleveland Museum of Art is currently exhibiting 41 tempera paintings created in just one year — 1938 — when the artist was just 20 years old. Patricia Hills, professor emerita of art history at Boston University, will discuss Lawrence’s agenda in the series, titled The Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture. The exhibition and lecture coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Haitian Revolution. The lecture takes place in CMA’s Recital Hall tonight at 7, and the exhibition runs through Sunday, Jan. 4.
