One of the nation’s most important and comprehensive collections of African-American art presented in its entirety

For over a 50-year period, John and Vivian Hewitt visited galleries, artists’ studios and exhibitions, collecting hundreds of paintings, etchings and sketches. The John & Vivian Hewitt Collection of African-American Art is an assemblage of fifty-eight two-dimensional works celebrating the expression and passion of twenty artists, including Charlotte-born Romare Bearden and other master artists, Margaret Burroughs, Jonathan Green, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Ann Tanksley and Henry Ossawa Tanner.
