Modern Heroics: 75 Years of African American Expressionism at the Newark Museum

This exhibition presents selected works from Newark’s permanent collection of African-American art.  Taking a fresh look at heroic themes in modern and contemporary art, this unique exhibition features 34 paintings and sculptural works with an emphasis on storytelling and expressive imagery.   Mythical and universal subject matter, the bold use of color and dramatic scale, and the artists’ direct physical engagement with their materials are all themes explored in this exhibition. Inlcudes work by Romare Bearden.
