Gallery Talk: Jacob Lawrence's Genesis Series

Join exhibition curator Jacqueline Copeland in a tour and conversation about Jacob Lawrence’s Genesis Series (1990), on loan from Eddie and Sylvia Brown’s Baltimore collection. The eight colorful works in Lawrence’s distinctive style describe passages from the book of Genesis in the King James version of the Bible. They reflect the artist’s youthful memories of passionate sermons about the Creation given by ministers at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem where he was baptized in 1932.
