I visited the museum on Saturday, Aug. 1. The first set of work about L'Ouverturre & the Haitian revolution - who was the artist? Thanks.

I'm so excited about this exhibit, I can't wait to see it!! I know I'm going to love it, Art speaks to me like nothing else I've ever experienced.

What an amazing collection! I'm so grateful to the Kelley family for sharing these works. And, thank you Amon Carter for the exhibit.

Hi J. Beaty, That is the work of Jacob Lawrence (1917–2000).

I have an original oil painting of Richard W. Dempsey entitled "Cartagena Architectual" that I'm interested in selling. I would like to get in contact with any serious collector of his work.
Thanks
