This exhibition organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions highlights the career of one of the most important African American artists of the 20th century. Catlett's work blended art and social consciousness and confronted the most disturbing injustices against African Americans in her time. She is best known for her work during the 1960s and 70s when she created politically charged, black expressionistic sculptures and prints.
