Grab your coffee and join Chief Curator / Gary R. Libby Curator of Art, Ruth Grim, virtually on ZOOM for a presentation in celebration of Black History month on the exhibition The Art of Elizabeth Catlett from the Collection of Samella Lewis on view in Root Hall from January 15-March 13. Organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, this exhibition 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. Influenced by the Harlem Renaissance of the 1930s, she is best known for her work during the 1960s and 70s, when she created politically charged, black expressionistic sculptures and prints. The work in this exhibition is from the collection of artist, educator and author Samella Lewis, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Art History, Scripps College Claremont, CA. Lewis was a student of Caylett's in the 1940s and Catlett became her mentor. The two became lifetime friends.
