ATL - Works of Romare Bearden


Join fellow Tartans to view this exhibition at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University.
We will meet in the museum lobby area at 10 a.m.

Works of Romare Bearden (1911-1988), one of the most powerful and original artists of the 20th century, created a series of collages and watercolors based on Homer's epic poem The Odyssey. Rich in symbolism and allegorical content, Bearden's Odyssey Series created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African American culture. A new exhibition from the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service represents the first full-scale presentation of these works outside of New York City.

In addition, the museum will have a children's activity for ages 3-5 and accompanying adult. Children will see Bearden’s colorful collages and watercolors and make a collage of their own.

The children's activity is free; however a reservation is required by calling: 404-727-0519

Adults: $8
Students, Seniors and Children (6-17): $6
Children 5 and under: Free
