VIBE: This one is a no-brainer. Presented by the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco, “From Process to Print: Graphic Works by Romare Bearden” is a traveling exhibition that is part of a national centennial celebration of Bearden, an American artist of African American descent who is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented and original visual artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition, organized by the Romare Bearden Foundation, includes over 85 lithographs, etchings, collagraphs, collagraph plates, screen prints, drypoints, monoprints, and engravings produced over three decades by Bearden. It will be on view from Friday, May 6 through Sunday, July 3, 2011.
And the best part? The General Opening on Friday, May 6 is free (7:30pm – 9:00pm), and includes music provided by the Jazzschool in Berkeley. These folks have some serious skills. There’s your Friday, all mapped out for you.
