Twentieth-century American artist Archibald J. Motley, Jr. had an important impact on art history. While considered a major contributor to the Harlem Renaissance, Motley never lived in New York but rather played that role from Chicago his home for most of his life. Amy Mooney, Associate Professor of Art History at Columbia College Chicago, will present an overview of Motleys life and work. A special exhibit of Motleys work is on display at the Chicago Cultural Center through August.
