Community and Collection Talk: The 50th Anniversary Spiral Collective
In 1963 Hale Woodruff and Romare Bearden began an alliance of artists who met weekly to discuss their work, politics, and civil rights. The group exhibited only once in New York in 1965, before disbanding. Join Collections Manager Joshua Gorman as he shows selections from the museum’s permanent collection including works by Bearden, Robert Alston, Norman Lewis, Alvin Hollingsworth and other artists–before and after Spiral.
