Event Description

William H. Johnson, "Sowing," about 1940. Oil on burlap. Smithsonian American Art Muse

African American Art in the 20th Century presents nearly 50 paintings and sculptures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s premier collection of African American art. Created in moments of significant social and political change—from the 1920s jazz age to the 1960s civil rights movement and beyond—each work dazzles visually while also shedding light on the African American experience. The exhibition features artworks by 34 leading 20th-century artists, including Romare Bearden, Sam Gilliam, Jacob Lawrence, Lois Mailou Jones, Hale Woodruff, and others.
