      Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis
    • Saturday, February 6, 2016
    • "Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis" will be the first comprehensive museum overview of this influential artist, who explored multiple styles and whose extraordinary work spanned several decades of the 20th century. Norman Lewis was a pivotal figure in American art, a participant in the Harlem art community, an innovative contributor to Abstract Expressionism, and a politically-conscious activist. Bringing together works from major international public and private collections, the exhibition is organized with the full support of Lewis' family.

      Seachange: Abstraction in Norman Lewis' Time
    • Saturday, February 6, 2016
    • Norman Lewis' career spanned four-and-a-half decades between 1935 and 1979. During that time American artists developed dynamic approaches to abstract art. This installation uses work from PAFA's permanent collection to complement "Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis" and provide a context for his achievement. It includes a broad range of abstract art made by Lewis's contemporaries from the 1930's through about 1990.
