ROMARE BEARDEN: ARTIST AS ACTIVIST & VISIONARY is now on display at the National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, TN, through the end of 2019. The exhibition will then be presented at the Driskell Center, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, in January 2020. It is currently available for circulation through 2022.

The exhibition presents examples of Romare Bearden’s influences as an artist of social conscience and action. Romare Bearden (1911–1988) recognized as one of the most important visual artists of the 20th Century, countered racial stereotypes with images drawn from history, literature, and the free world of his imagination.


Drawn from the Romare Bearden Foundation Collection, the exhibition examines how Bearden agitated for change through images and writing. Included are a diverse collection of original collage, watercolor, limited edition prints, reproductions, and rare archival material, including his magazine covers and editorial cartoons.


The exhibition was organized by the
Romare Bearden Foundation, New York, NY.
