In Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor, Leslie Umberger considers more than 200 artworks to provide the most comprehensive and in-depth study of the artist to date; she examines his life, art, and powerful drive to bear witness through the means available to him, pictures. The story of his art opens in the late 1930s, when Traylor first received attention for his pencil drawings on found board, and it concludes with the posthumous success of his oeuvre.
While the exhibition Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor is on view, SAAM is partnering with the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s Sweet Home Café to present classic Southern foods. Each week, executive chef Jerome Grant will provide a rotating menu item at SAAM’s Courtyard Café honoring the Southern food tradition. You can also find a market table with Sweet Home Café food items to take home including a signature spice rub, heirloom bean soup, and loaf cake for sale.
