Thursday, February 03, 2022, 07:00pm - 08:00pm

African and African American Art a Virtual Field Trip

On this virtual tour of the Newark Museum, explore African-American artists' outstanding contributions toward artistic, political and social change across different centuries. This conversational virtual tour will be presented live by a Newark Museum docent and was made possible with support from the Friends of NPML

The Newark Museum of Art began its commitment to African American art in 1929 with the acquisition of an important painting by Henry Ossawa Tanner. It has continued to build a strong collection in this area adding works by Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence and Robert Thompson as well as the work of more contemporary African American artists including Melvin Edwards and Carrie Mae Weems.
