The simplified forms of Bill Traylor's artwork belie the complexity of his world, creativity, and inspiring bid for self-definition in a segregated culture. Join us for an afternoon of discussions and lectures on topics related to the exhibition, Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor. Exhibition curator Leslie Umberger leads a distinguished group of scholars who provide new insights and information about how one man's visual record of African American life gives larger meaning to the story of the nation.
