The African American Museum in Philadelphia on Thursday is hosting the author of a new biography of Romare Bearden, a major black artist best known for his collage work in the 1960s and 70s. He died in 1988.
“An American Odyssey: the Life and Work of Romare Bearden” by Mary Schmidt Campbell is the first book-length biography about him.
Campbell grew up in Philadelphia, attended Philadelphia High School for Girls and Swarthmore College. She left to attend graduate school at Syracuse University where she first met Bearden in 1970, when she organized a campus exhibition of his work.
