"Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties"

This exhibit offers a focused look at artwork from a decade defined by social protest and America’s struggle for racial equality. Featuring approximately 98 paintings, sculptures and photographs by Richard Avedon, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Mark di Suvero, Barkley Hendricks, Jacob Lawrence, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Andy Warhol, Jack Whitten and others, the exhibition highlights the wide-ranging aesthetic approaches artists used to address the fight for social justice.

Situated within the larger context of the Civil Rights movement, the presentation examines the ways in which artists aligned themselves with the campaign to end discrimination and bridged racial borders through creative work and protest.
