Tribute to Elizabeth Catlett: Honor, Courage and Creativity
Friday, February 22, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
The National Conference of Artists (NCA), in collaboration with the Schomburg Center, celebrates Elizabeth Catlett (April 15, 1915 – April 2, 2012), a respected and treasured member of NCA. Catlett’s abstract sculptures of the human form reflected her deep concern about the African-American experience and the struggle for Civil Rights.
