History, Labor, and Life

Tuesday, September 17, 24, and October 1

In conjunction with the exhibition History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence, Curator of Art Jennifer Jankauskas and Educator Elisabeth Palmer will focus on the exhibition’s three themes. Over the course of this three- week program they will demonstrate how Lawrence linked past and present to tell stories of the African-American experience through observations of community life, work, struggle, and emancipation.
