Heritage: Wadsworth and Jae Jarrell Opening Reception

Sun, 11/19/2017, 2:00 p.m.
Ames Family Atrium

Join us for a community-wide reception in honor of the exhibition, Heritage: Wadsworth and Jae Jarrell. Featuring 15 works from the mid-1960s to the present, the exhibition is a stunning array of colorful paintings, sculptures, and textiles, including Wadsworth’s Heritage (1973), a painting of great significance that was recently added to the museum’s permanent collection. The Jarrells’ work engages music, the family, and many cultures from the African continent as cornerstones of pride and communal identity. Taking the form of an intimate dialogue between husband and wife, the exhibition celebrates these two Cleveland-based multidisciplinary artists who have illustrated a keen ability to create art that conveys the beauty, power, and energy of the African American community. We’re honored that the Jarrells will be in attendance at this music-filled afternoon, featuring a performance by The Admirables, and free art activities inspired by their work.
