Macy’s Celebrates Black History Month With Romare Bearden Exhibit [EVENT]

Macy’s and the Romare Bearden Foundation

Artist - Romare Bearden

Jai Stone talks shop with Ronnie Tyler

Last week I got a personal invitation from my dear friends Lamar & Ronnie Tyler (founders of BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com) to an exhibition of classic art by renowned artist Romare Bearden.

The Black History Month Centennial Celebration kicked off at Macy’s yesterday at stores around the country including the  Lenox Square Location here in Atlanta.  Art and jazz fans poured in to the standing room only event just to take in the marvelous artwork.

If you like art, then I recommend you preview a satellite exhibit of Romare Bearden’s artwork.  View watercolors, prints, oil on paper and dramatic black and white Photostats that date from 1964 to 1984 when Romare Bearden was at the peak of his artistic power.  In addition to works on loan from the Foundation are new works by artists inspired and influenced by Bearden’s life and legacy.
