A conversation dedicated to the lesser-studied sphere of Romare Bearden’s art making: his public art. In his later career, he translated his iconic collage making practice into larger-than-life ceramic, mosaic and painted murals displayed in salient communal spaces around New York, Charlotte, Baltimore and more. Oftentimes, these works served as an initial meeting ground, introducing Bearden to the general public.
