Talks with Aric Putnam - Virtual The Harlem Renaissance and the art, poetry, and music of the 1920sl

Thursday, July 2, 2020

The 1920's were a period of great creativity and the art created in this moment continues to shape our culture today. The artists of the 20's often defied genre; poetry was shaped by music, painting by literature, all in the service of finding a new identity at the onset of the new "American" century. In this session we will explore the culture of the 1920's, poetry, visual art, the early years of blues and jazz, in order to better understand the relationship between art and identity during the 1920's and for today.
