Romare Bearden: Memory and Magic (virtual)

February 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Romare Bearden drew on his personal memories and used his vast knowledge of history, religion, and literature to create some of the most enduring images of the 20th Century. He placed aspects of African American life within the context of universal themes, which is why his work is so accessible and so unforgettable. Bearden used many different media and techniques, but he is best known for his innovative collages. They depict powerful scenes across time, place, history, and experience. These signature works combine visual, emotional, and cultural memory.
