The Blocks

May 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am - June 27, 2014 @ 8:00 pm

Romare Bearden, The Block

Opening Reception Thursday, May 8, 6-8 pm

Romare Bearden’s seminal work, “The Block,” is a six-panel painting that depicts life in Harlem through its neighborhood buildings. As an acknowledgement of Bearden’s powerful work and community spirit and the recent 100th anniversary of his birth, we invited artists to create an artwork that celebrates their favorite block in Hartford.
The chosen works will be on exhibit Tuesday, May 6, until Friday, June 27.
