Year-Round Celebrations of African American Art, 2024 Calendars Feature Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Alma Thomas, Ernie Barnes, and Betye Saar and Her Daughters

  BROADER INTEREST in African American art over the past several years has coincided with the production of more wall calendars showcasing the work of Black artists. In 2021, calendars dedicated to Black female artists were finally added to the mix. Looking forward to 2024, more African American art calendars than ever are available. Art by these artists can be found in the collections of museums around the world. The new crop includes Alma Thomas and Faith Ringgold (presenting selections from her quilt series The French Collection); perennial favorites Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence (featuring images from his The Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture series); and new calendars from Ernie Barnes and Winfred Rembert, who have gained newfound attention. In addition, several artists are receiving the calendar treatment for the first time in 2024: Whitfield Lovell and the Saars, a family of Los Angeles artists led by matriarch Betye Saar.
