2019 African American Art Wall Calendar


Description: The works by African American artists represented in this calendar display a wide range of subject matter and theme while often speaking directly to the African American experience. After political activist Angela Davis was arrested in 1970, Charles White’s Love Letter, featured on the cover of this calendar, was used in a letter-writing campaign by her supporters. Portrayals of African American families by well-known artists such as William H. Johnson, Romare Bearden, and Malvin Gray Johnson make strong statements as well. Classical landscapes by Robert S. Duncanson and Edward Mitchell Bannister round out the selection. These twelve works are in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, which is home to more than two thousand works by more than two hundred African American artists.
