The traveling display “Jacob Lawrence and The Legend of John Brown” will be at UGL during Black History Month

February 14th, 2013

This three year traveling display makes its final stop in the Undergraduate Library Atrium in February. Showcasing the work of renowned African American artist Jacob Lawrence, the display features digitized reproductions of his silkscreen print series The Legend of John Brown, and includes informative text that details the life and times of Lawrence the artist, and the abolitionist Brown.

The original prints are owned by the Wayne State University Art Collection and can be viewed
on the 2nd floor of the Undergraduate Library, on the walls outside the Student Technology Studio and the Writing Center.

The Jacob Lawrence and The Legend of John Brown traveling display was made possible by a generous grant from the Detroit Area Library Network (DALNET).
