Description

In 2016 The Phillips Collection in Washington DC commissioned Playwright and Producing Artistic Director Jacqueline E. Lawton, Assistant Professor of Theater, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to create an evening of short plays based on the Great Migration series painted by famed African American painter, Jacob Lawrence. These plays will be presented together as Act one of a Two-Act evening that also includes Kent County’s own RED DEVIL MOON, Thursday – Sunday, November 1 – 4, 2018 at the Garfield Center for the Arts. Tickets are just $10 each, and free for all 18 years old or younger.

In 1941, the 26 year old Jacob Lawrence completed the 60 panels that make up The Migration Series. This fall, the Kent County Arts Council offers a unique glimpse into these works and the Great Migration with a multifaceted, multimedia presentation with arts, words and music.
