“African American Masterworks from the Paul R. Jones Collection at The University of Alabama” at the LSU MOA

August 3

Sixty paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs by some of the country’s most prominent Black artists will be on display at the LSU Museum of Art, on loan from The Paul R. Jones Collection at The University of Alabama. The Paul R. Jones Collection was founded with the intent of reinforcing Black artists’ place of importance in the history of American art, and to allow younger generations access to their works. The show at the LSU MOA will include pieces by 20th century Black artists Sam Gilliam, Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Howardena Pindell, Emma Amos, and Romare Bearden. An opening reception and concert will be held August 3, featuring a performance of Nina Simone classics by ChloĆ© Marie at 6 pm. Free. lsumoa.org.
