Al Hirschfeld Exhibit Celebrates Black History Month
Al Hirschfeld was a legendary artist, known for his stylized line drawings of performers.
In honor of Black History Month, a wonderful curated exhibit celebrating black dancers drawn by this renowned caricaturist can be viewed at the Al Hirschfeld Foundation website through March 13.
Titled “Amplified Dignity: Black dancers drawn by Hirschfeld” this stunning virtual exhibit was curated by dance scholar, educator, choreographer, and dramaturg Melanie George. Melanie is the founder and director of Jazz Is…Dance Project and is associate curator at Jacob’s Pillow. View this excellent collection at Amplified Dignity
