The Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, USA) presents African American Art: Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era and Beyond, a show with a selection of works by 43 black artists who lived through the tremendous changes of the 20th century. In paintings, sculpture, prints and photographs, the featured artists embrace themes both universal and specific to the African American experience, including the exploration of identity, the struggle for equality, the power of music and the beauties and hardships of life in rural and urban America.
The 100 works on view are drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s rich collection of African American art, the largest and finest in the United States. More than half of the works featured are being exhibited by the museum for the first time, including paintings by Benny Andrews, Loïs Mailou Jones and Jacob Lawrence, as well as photographs by Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks and Marilyn Nance.
Location: The Smithsonian American Art Museum. 800 F Street Northwest Washington, DC 20004, USA.
Opening hours: from Monday to Sunday from 11.30am to 7pm.
