Art Talk Live: Elizabeth CatlettJoin staff from the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) and the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum (GACM) to explore connections between GACM’s exhibition The Art of Elizabeth Catlett: From the Collection of Samella Lewis and NMWA’s collection. This exhibition comes from the collection of Samella Lewis (1924–2022), a student of Catlett and an accomplished artist, professor and author. It features 30 works by Catlett; a few by her husband, Francisco Mora; and others by Lewis herself. The conversation will extend to artists with ties to Catlett past and present, such as Loïs Mailou Jones, one of Catlett’s teachers at Howard University.
