The celebrated African American artist Jacob Lawrence illustrated the biblical creation in his Genesis Series. This 1989 commission resulted in a set of eight silkscreened images in bold colors that move in an active, cinematic style, recalling the passionate sermons heard during the artist's youth. Explore these striking works of art, on loan from a private collection, during this free, docent-led tour, starting in the Centre Street lobby.
