Jacob Lawrence, who is known for his depictions of African American life, created a vast portfolio of works during his lifetime. In addition to depicting the life and work of those around him, Lawrence created a series of historical narratives that will also be on view. Students are invited to submit works of art that reflect the daily life and work that happens around us.
Student Art Collection
The Museum has purchased artwork from many of the student art exhibitions held in the ArtWorks Gallery, forming a significant student art collection that spans over 25 years of creative expressions by young artists. Work from the student art collection is on view at various times and places and was included in two recent exhibitions in DC hosted by the Department of Education.
