The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s recent blockbuster exhibit featuring Jacob Lawrence’s narrative series Struggle . . . From the History of the American People (1954-6) was a show-stopper, delving into the birth of the American Republic and the exertions of its peoples—leaders, women, laborers, indigenous Americans, and the enslaved. Join DOROT when arts educator Riva Blumenfeld returns to DOROT to add context to the artist and the series and to explore Lawrence’s long, critically acclaimed and successful career.
