Henry Art Gallery University District
Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 1 2017
It's been 100 years since American artist Jacob Lawrence was born, and Seattle is celebrating appropriately. Seattle Art Museum's gigantic, unprecedented exhibit of all 60 panels from his Migration Series drew large crowds in April, and now there's an exhibit of silkscreen prints at the Henry. These works explore the Genesis creation narrative ("In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth," etc.) and are based on Lawrence's experience listening to sermons at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.
