2021 Calendar African American Art
From traditional landscapes and a still life from the nineteenth century, to contemporary works that are narrative and symbolic, this collection represents decades of brilliant creations by African American artists. The exceptional early works, reflective of the aesthetic of their time, combine with modern forceful portrayals of black culture. Elizabeth Catlett’s iconic Sharecropper aligns with Betye Saar’s Beyond Mindnight to present two very different experiences. Themes of spirituality, community, and strength shine from works by Bob Thompson, Charles McGee, and Romare Bearden. All twelve artworks in this calendar celebrate the key role of African American art in the continuing evolution of Western culture and ideas.
