Beauford Delaney: Resonance of Form and Vibration of Color!
While I concentrate on the final organizational details for the exhibition, I want to share a couple of news bytes about Beauford from the Internet.
Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes is a three-part exhibition at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art held in collaboration with the Harvard Art Museums. Consisting of three exhibits at two venues, its mission is to explore the interaction between jazz music and the visual arts. "Performance" will be located in Cooper Gallery's lobby and front galleries. Works by Beauford will be displayed alongside photographs by Hugh Bell and Van Vechten. There will also be a sound installation accompanying an exhibition of album covers. The exhibition will run from February 3 through May 8.

Les Amis de Beauford Delaney, Reid Hall, and the Wells International Foundation (WIF) are partnering to bring an exhibition of original Beauford Delaney works to Reid Hall in Paris in February 2016! WE VALUE YOUR SUPPORT!
