Feb 20 - May 24, 2020

The traveling exhibition History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence explores three major themes of Lawrence’s larger oeuvre and specifically focuses on his graphic work. Lawrence’s recording and recollection of African-American and larger African diasporic histories are featured, as well as his vivid observations of the dynamic city life in his native Harlem, New York City. Works in the exhibition span from 1963 to 2000 and include significant complete print portfolios, such as the Toussaint L’Ouverture series, as well as The Legend of John Brown series, amongst others.
