Henry Ossawa Tanner: Painter of the Spirit

  • Nov 19, 2006 – Feb 25, 2007
Installation view: Weatherspoon Art Museum, 2006.

The Weatherspoon Art Museum is honored to present a dozen works by America's best-known African American artist, Henry Ossawa Tanner. Made possible in part by a generous loan of art from the Smithsonian Institution, this show is organized around a major Tanner painting recently given to the Weatherspoon.

The presentation of the exhibition Henry Ossawa Tanner: Painter of the Spirit is supported in part by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and Ms. McDonald Bane.

There will be a Henry Ossawa Tanner Symposium held in conjunction with this exhibition on February 3, 2007.

Details about the symposium can be found on our Events page, and a Symposium Registration Form can be downloaded from our website on the Weatherspoon Art Museum Homepage or by calling (336) 334-5770. Registration deadline: January 26

The symposium is co-sponsored by the African American Studies Program/Conference on African American Culture and Experience and the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The annual Conference on African American Culture and Experience (CACE) at UNCG examines critical and timely African American-related issues and perspectives to engage students, faculty, staff, and members of the community in the exploration and discussion of these topics and ideas. 


We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
