“An Epic Series by Jacob Lawrence” Opens Sat., Jan. 21st Seattle Art Museum

See The Migration Series in its entirety

For the first time in two decades, all 60 paintings of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series will travel to the West Coast. This epic series chronicles, in words and pictures, the exodus of African Americans from the rural South to the industrial North in the decades after the First World War. The Museum of Modern Art and The Phillips Collection have each loaned their half of the series so that this important story by a modern master can be shared at SAM.
