Romare Bearden: Urban Rhythms and Dreams of Paradise

November 17th through January 3rd 2013

Bearden’s art always tells the truth, perhaps most profoundly in his collage work, where bits of “fact”—photographs, magazine ads, textiles, found objects of every sort are incorporated into abstracted compositions that traffic in raw, recognizable, uncompromising truth.
