Romare Bearden: Visual Jazz

A bold, brilliant artist, Romare Bearden created collages and paintings of stunning humanity in which he aimed to do nothing less than “redefine the image of man” in terms of the African-American experience.

The documentary is narrated by Wynton Marsalis who masterfully draws parallels between jazz and the art of Romare Bearden. The documentary also treats viewers to rare footage of Bearden at work in his studio while he explains, in his own words, what he is doing as he creates.

Other guests and commentators include: Marilyn Kushner, Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Brooklyn Museum; Robert Blackburn, Master Printmaker; Jeffrey Bergen, President of ACA.

The film is 30 minutes. Approximately ½ hour before and ½ hour after the film has been allotted for guests to see the exhibition.
There are no refreshments served for these films.
Seating is limited and RSVPs are requested. Call 386-734-4371 to RSVP.
Members: No Charge, Non-members $10
