Due to the federal government shutdown, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery are closed; programs and events at the museum are also canceled.
Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor Symposium
The simplified forms of Bill Traylor's artwork belie the complexity of his world, creativity, and inspiring bid for self-definition in a segregated culture. Join us for an afternoon of discussions and lectures on topics related to the exhibition, Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor. Exhibition curator Leslie Umberger leads a distinguished group of scholars who provide new insights and information abut how one man's visual record of African American life gives larger meaning to the story of the nation.
Support for the Margaret Z. Robson Symposium Series is provided by Douglas O. Robson.
