Nan Brewer, the IU Art Museum’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will discuss the IU Art Museum’s commitment to showcasing African American art, which dates to the 1969 exhibition Four Artists. This year’s inaugural One-Hour Exhibition will include examples by two of those artists, Richard Hunt and John E. Dowell, Jr., as well as works by Romare Bearden, Sam Gilliam, Eldzier Cortor, Richard Mayhew, Gordon Parks, Lorna Simpson, and Renée Stout.
