Free Virtual Workshop: Harlem Renaissance & the Art of Collage- Free and Open to the Public!
< Back to All Events
At the turn of the 20th century, the Great Migration saw Black Americans leaving the segregated Jim Crow South for northern cities. Harlem, a neighborhood in upper Manhattan, quickly became the epicenter of a vibrant community, drawing over 175,000 Black Americans from southern states. Some of the greatest minds in poetry, art, and theater lived within this 3 square mile area giving rise to The Harlem Renaissance.
Join local artist Kenneth Lewis Sr. in an exploration of the Harlem Renaissance and the collage work of Romare Bearden. Using basic supplies found around the home, learn how to utilize the power of collage as an art form. All ages are invited to join this special hands-on celebration of art, history, and the possibilities of this exciting form of creative self-expression.
