Heavy black lines along with circles and ovals rendered in hot hues of orange and yellow evoke urban architecture and the glare of streetlights in an abstract painting. Two shadowy figures occupy the lower right, and legible signs include “Translux,” “St. H NW,” and “Casino.”

Event Description

Celebrating Washington, D.C., Artists of Color

Join educators from the National Museum of Women in the Arts to learn more about, look at, and discuss artwork by Washington, D.C., artists of color. This informal conversation will focus on works in the museum’s collection by artists Alma Woodsey Thomas (1891–1978), Georgia Mills Jessup (1926–2016), and Renée Stout (b. 1958).

Optional art-making activities will be introduced during this program. If you wish to participate, have within reach:
  1. A long sheet of paper (18 x 6 in. recommended)
  2. Mark-making tools that will not saturate your chosen paper (e.g. pastels, pens, pencils, markers, colored pencils)
  3. Optional: bone folder or another tool to help make crisp folds (e.g. popsicle stick or plastic knife)
Registrants will receive a link to join the Zoom room Friday, March 11.
