"Rising Up: Hale Woodruff's Murals at Talladega College" features six monumentally-scaled murals painted in 1939-42 by African American artist Hale Woodruff. Never before seen outside of Alabama's Talladega College, the murals depict the 1839 mutiny by slaves on the Spanish ship La Amistad and its aftermath. Newly restored to their original, vibrant colors, the murals are accompanied by 30 paintings and prints that document Woodruff's work from the 1920s to the 1940s, making this exhibition a rare opportunity to see this important Harlem Renaissance artist's work in depth.
