Romare Bearden's series of collages and watercolors based on Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey will be traveling to The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, at Columbia University, New York City, in November 2014. Rich in symbolism and allegorical content, Bearden’s Odyssey series created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African American culture. This exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in cooperation with the Romare Bearden Foundation and Estate and DC Moore Gallery.
