Course Description

Most of us, if asked, could name 10 Impressionist artists without too much trouble but I bet many of us would be hard-pressed to name 10 Black artists, either American or from the rest of the African diaspora.  This course will look at early depictions of Blacks in Western art, examine some of the earliest Black American artists, and continue to the present day. We’ll look at the Great Migration and what role it had on the Harlem Renaissance. We’ll look at lesser-known but equally important roles of the Harmon Foundation, and the Chicago Institute of Art and the roles they both played in promoting Black art and artists. Join in on the fun as we enjoy looking at and discussing a lot of great images. (ONLINE)
