Jeffreen M. Hayes, Ph.D. - Augusta Savage: Renaissance Woman — in conversation with Aviva Kempner

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 14, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

A sculptor and activist who became one of the leading figures of the Harlem Renaissance, Augusta Savage (1892-1962) grew up in Florida, where she endured opposition from her minister father and racism before moving to New York in the 1920s. There she co-founded the Harlem Artists' Guild and became the first director of the federally-supported Harlem Community Art Center. In this companion volume to the traveling exhibit of Savage’s work, Hayes, an art historian and curator, adds commentary to fifty images of Savage's work, illuminating her life, times, and legacy. Hayes will be in conversation with documentary filmmaker Aviva Kempner, whose works include The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg and Rosenwald.
