The Great American Epic: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series

May 3-October 26, 2008

The complete 60-panel series, rarely seen in its entirely, will be on view Oct. 26, 2008 exclusively at the Phillips. Told through vivid patterns and colors, this masterpiece of narrative painting is the first ever produced on the great 20th-century exodus of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North. The exhibition will take an in-depth look at Lawrence’s powerful interpretation of this significant moment in American history and examine how the story still resonates today.
