Jacob LawrenceThree Series of Prints February 16 – May 4, 2024, From the Collections of Dr. and Mrs. Leon Banks & Alitash Kebede Organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions Since his Great Migration series was first celebrated in Forbes magazine in 1940, when the artist was only 23 years old, Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) has produced a body of work that captures Black history and human history through the artist’s unique and dramatic style. Lawrence told stories through series of paintings, and in his graphic work, Lawrence has chronicled important histories and his own experience, from depictions of the Haitian Revolution to scenes of daily life in Harlem.  Lawrence’s work chronicles a universal struggle toward equality that is deeply seated in the depths of the human consciousness. This exhibition features 31 graphic works by Jacob Lawrence created between 1983 and 1997. Included are works from his Hiroshima Series, the Genesis Series, and the Toussaint L’Ouverture Series.
