Through Our Eyes - Perspectives of African American Life in the 20th Century

Regular Museum Hours, March 9, 2021 | The Kansas African American Museum

Derived from The Kansas African American Museum’s permanent collection, Through Our Eyes: Perspectives of African American Life in the 20th century explores how African American artists experienced shifts in culture, social interaction and everyday life throughout the 20th century.

The 1900s ushered in the greatest social, technological and industrial changes in all of history and African American artists often served as reporters that documented shifts in our culture and way of life. Through Our Eyes navigates the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Movement, life in the South and beyond. The exhibition includes works by artists such as Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, and Lois Mailou Jones, as well as Kansas based artists.
