Event Description:

The narrative themes of Romare Bearden’s work spanned historical, political, and religious topics. Through his innovative works of art, Bearden communicated his ideas and thoughts about everyday African American life in 20th century America. The exhibition includes prints in a variety of methods (aquatint, engraving, etching, lithograph, and silkscreen) from the Hofstra University Museum Collections.

Funding has been provided by Sterling National Bank and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
