"Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor" Symposium

Start time

Bill Traylor (c. 1853–1949) is among the most important American artists of the 20th century. SAAM organized a groundbreaking exhibition of Traylor’s work, Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor, which brings together 155 drawings and paintings to provide the most encompassing and in-depth study of the artist to date.

On February 22, 2019, a distinguished group of scholars present new insights and information about how one man’s visual record of African American life gives larger meaning to the story of the nation.

This program is the inaugural symposium in the Margaret Z. Robson Symposium Series. Support for the series is provided by Douglas O. Robson.
