Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle


Elizabeth Hutton Turner, University Professor, University of Virginia; and Austen Barron Bailly, Chief Curator, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art share the virtual podium to discuss their major exhibition currently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle. Turner and Bailly address an overlooked series of paintings by Lawrence that documented Americans’ historical struggle for freedom just as the Civil Rights Movement was gaining momentum in the mid-1950s. Their remarkable project includes commentary and artworks by contemporary artists, including Hank Willis Thomas.
