printHistory, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence exhibit is at the Gibbes Museum now through April 30th.  Click here to buy tickets.

History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence features a comprehensive overview of influential American artist Jacob Lawrence’s (1917-2000) printmaking work produced from 1963 until his passing in 2000.

Lawrence was primarily concerned with the narration of African-American experiences and histories. His acute observations of community life, work, struggle and emancipation during his lifetime were rendered alongside vividly imagined chronicles of the past. The past and present in his practice are intrinsically linked, providing insight into the social, economic and political realities that continue to impact and shape contemporary society today.
