Join us to celebrate the opening of the Blockson Collection exhibition Frank Stewart’s Romare Bearden and Ruth E. Fine’s donation of Bearden’s (1911-1988) writings, exhibition catalogs, and press clippings. Fine’s gift also includes slides of artworks used for the exhibition catalogue, The Art of Romare Bearden, a show she curated for the National Gallery of Art in 2003. The work is considered one of the best bibliographies on any African American artist.
This exhibition is presented with the Tyler School of Art in conjunction with Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis (1909-1979), curated by Ruth E. Fine and on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from November 13, 2015 through April 3, 2016. All images in the Blockson Collection show are by John W. Mosley and Frank Stewart.
