Artist and art historian Molly Rowland is teaching a course on the Harlem Renaissance via the Cape Symphony on Mondays starting February 22nd, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The Harlem Renaissance was a period in which African-American art, music, literature, dance, and theater flourished in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, in New York City, from the 1910s to the 1930s. The course will explore “why Black artists moved from classical styles like landscape to more Afrocentric work, and how these artists used their unique voices to depict their experiences and create a revolution in art,” according to the description.
Artists studied will include Augusta Savage, Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Aaron Douglas, Lois Maliou Jones, James Van Der Zee, and Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller. Registration is $160 at capesymphony.org.
