JACOB LAWRENCE: THREE SERIES OF PRINTS
Customs House Museum / 200 S. 2nd St. November 1 - December 31st
From his first published print in 1963, Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) produced a body of work that is both highly dramatic and intensely personal, making him one of the most prominent and lauded artists of the Harlem Renaissance. From depictions of civil rights confrontations to scenes of daily life, these images present a vision of a common struggle toward unity and equality, a universal struggle deeply seated in the depths of the human consciousness. This exhibition features 31 graphic works created by Lawrence between 1983 and 1997. Included are his Hiroshima series of eight prints, the Genesis series of eight prints, the Toussaint L’Ouverture series of ten prints and five other significant works.
