James Van Der Zee's portrait of a couple in Harlem, 1932
Note that this was taken during the Great Depression!
Panel #1 of 60 from Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series, 1941
Lawrence painted this piece when he was 23 years old
Mr. Cassara reports that he was pleased and impressed with the knowledge the students brought to the classes and delighted by the connections they made between Lawrence's Great Migration series and the African art they have been studying in his class.
Our sincere thanks to Ms. Sokolove and the Asheville Art Museum for contributing to arts integration and increasing Claxton's A+ visibility. We plan to continue to strengthen our partnership with the Museum!
