African-American Art: 20th Century Masterworks is Michael Rosenfeld Gallery's ninth annual exhibition celebrating the vast accomplishments of twentieth-century African-American artists. This exhibition will include important paintings, sculpture, photography and works on paper by more than thirty artists, offering a rare opportunity to examine the significance of an artistic tradition that, outside of the African-American community, was too often ignored during much of the twentieth century. By presenting both representational and abstract art, this exhibition offers a broad spectrum of artistic expression.

This exhibition was on view at the Tubman African American Museum, Macon, GA from April 29 through June 30, 2002.
