Additionally, her signature canvas drawn from a variety of private and public collections will also be displayed. The exhibition is organized by The Tang and The Studio Museum in Harlem.
Lauren Haynes, Associate Curator, Permanent Collection at The Studio Harlem stated in a press release, “Alma Thomas’ work provides an exciting opportunity for a new collaboration between The Studio Museum and the Tang. Her work incorporates diverse influences and artistic traditions that make her a pioneering figure in American art, and we are thrilled to galvanize renewed interest in her work and life to introduce her unique vision to the public.”
