The Friends of African and African American Art Reception

About The Event

Michael J. Horvitz Private Dining Room

Members of the Friends of African and African American Art are invited to a reception following the Robert P. Madison Family Distinguished Lecture in African and African American Art

Beauford Delaney’s painting shifted dramatically when he left America for France, becoming more abstract and more luminous. In this lecture, Key Jo Lee guides audiences through the life and artistic transformations that occurred after Delaney, like so many other Black American artists at the time, moved from New York City to Paris in 1953.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Click here to reserve your free tickets
