For this special Art at Noon get an inside look at The African American Museum In Philadelphia's exhibition Anna Russell Jones: The Art of Design with curator Huewayne Watson.

This lecture will focus on Anna Russell Jones within the wider visual domain in the twentieth century whereby dispossessed African-descended people in the U.S. created visual cultures—invoking real and imagined lineages and ancestries—through life-long study and work in the arts.

With special guest Dr. Anna O Marley, this lecture will tie into the exhibition Women in Motion: 150 Years of Women's Artistic Networks at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

The fall's Art-at-Lunch lectures are supported by the Behrend Family in memory of Rose Susan Hirschhorn Behrend, a former docent at the Academy and great supporter of its education programs.
