Romare Bearden Visual Jazz

A bold, brilliant artist, Romare Bearden created collages and paintings of stunning humanity in which he aimed to do nothing less than “redefine the image of man” in terms of the African-American experience.

The documentary is narrated by Wynton Marsalis who masterfully draws parallels between jazz and the art of Romare Bearden. The documentary also treats viewers to rare footage of Bearden at work in his studio while he explains, in his own words, what he is doing as he creates.

The film is 30 minutes. Approximately ½ hour before and ½ hour after the film has been allotted for guests to see the exhibition, African American Art: We Too Dream America.

The artists’ enthusiasm and originality make for an engaging and wonderful documentary.  It shows both artists working in their studios, discussing their influences, and collaborating on the installation piece, House of Gris Gris.
