This community art project is presented in collaboration with Transformative Arts.

Bearden’s work celebrates Black culture and expresses Black life as layered and complex, and foundational to American life. He recognizes the idea of lineage, especially in the role of Black women as memory keepers and storytellers.

“Bearden is one of the most important seminal artists of our time. He was the grandfather of contemporary Black art,” said jill moniz, Ph.D. founder of Transformative Arts. “He worked in collaboration with others, and he did as much as he possibly could to make space and open the doors as wide as he could to let as many people in as possible.”

Learn more about Romare Bearden and his unique expression of Black storytelling.

Free with Kidspace admission
