Art History Talk with Rebecca Albiani on Jacob Lawrence

Sept 8 at 2pm
$25 General
$20 Senior
Youth (18-) FREE (must reserve ticket)

This Seattle painter grew up in Depression-era Harlem. While many of his works criticize injustice and prejudice, his art also celebrates the Black experience. We think of Jacob Lawrence as a Seattle painter, but he came of age in depression-era Harlem with narrative paintings of Black heroes such as Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass. His most famous series tackled the migration of African-Americans from the rural south to the industrial north and cast a critical eye on injustice and prejudice, but his art would also celebrate Black experience. (Jacob Lawrence: American Storyteller, SAM, June 24, 2024 - January 5, 2025)
