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.

MASTERPIECES OF AFRICAN AMERICAN ART
COME TO MUSEUM OF ART - DELAND


Historic works from Faith Ringgold, Romare Bearden,

Jacob Lawrence, Purvis Young on View in 2019


The Museum of Art – DeLand is premiering a world-class exhibition comprised of two significant collections; African American Art:  We Too Dream America, curated by Dorian Bergen, co-owner of the ACA Galleries in New York, and Florida Artist Purvis Young: Overtown’s Visual Poet, selected from the Museum’s permanent collection at its galleries.


The works exhibited from these collections are not only interesting  for those who appreciate art, but also are important to the history of our country.  The Museum of Art – DeLand has organized in collaboration with ACA Galleries, and its national network of collectors, a critically acclaimed exhibition featuring  the art of the first generation of African American artists.


African American Art:  We Too Dream America highlights the Harlem Renaissance and the relationship between the visual arts and the social and racial issues of this era.  It marked a period of time when a sense of black identity, pride and self-determination changed the way African Americans thought about themselves and their cultural and intellectual contributions to American society.  Many of the featured artists in this exhibition were instrumental in launching the civil rights movement of the 1960s in the United States.

AWARD WINNING ARTIST SANDY WINTERS  


Sandy Winters: Creation and Destruction exhibition is in view through March 25, 2019 at the Downtown Galleries located at 100 N. Woodland Blvd., DeLand, Florida. The Creation and Destruction exhibition showcases a number of recently completed pieces by Sandy Winters, a New York Foundation for the Arts awarded artist.


Sandy Winters:  Creation and Destruction features contemporary works from Winters, whose career has spanned over four decades. Winters, a nationally-recognized artist with awards from across the country, has a distinct and unique mixed media approach to her art for which she has become synonymous.


“Winters’ amalgam of images, both abstract and representational, are uniquely individual, but not obscure or idiosyncratic. Most of all, she has mastered her mixed media approach thoroughly, and she has transmitted a sense of the value of that mastery to all who have experienced her work,” said George S. Bolge, CEO of the Museum of Art – DeLand.
