Presented in collaboration with Jackson State University, this exhibition features forty works by renowned artists. African American artwork spanning 150 years is represented in this selection from prominent Savannah, Georgia-collector Walter O. Evans, who began acquiring art in the 1970s with the purchase of a Jacob Lawrence portfolio of silkscreen prints. Lawrence is represented in this exhibition, along with Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Aaron Douglas, Mississippi-native Sam Gilliam, Richard Hunt, William H. Johnson, Lois Mailou Jones, Hughie Lee-Smith, Norman Lewis, Horace Pippin, and Charles White. This exhibition also includes nineteenth century artists Edward Mitchell Bannister, Robert Scott Duncanson, and Mary Edmonia Lewis.
