Aug 16, 2012–Oct 21, 2012

The Bearden Project Summer 2012 is currently on view at Studio Museum in Harlem.

” The Bearden Project brings together work by 100 contemporary artists who have all been influenced by this twentieth-century master. The artists inThe Bearden Project work in a wide range of media and are at different stages in their careers, but each was given the task of creating a work of art inspired by Bearden’s life and legacy. While their contributions are distinct and diverse, the artists in this exhibition are united in building a lasting tribute to Romare Bearden.” (From the curator Lauren Haynes)
Emma Amos contributed to the show with an original new piece commissioned by the Studio Museum.
