This innovative website revisits the seminal exhibition, The Portrayal of the Negro in American Painting, organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in 1964.

While critically acclaimed at the time, this important exhibition has not received significant scholarly attention. This digital initiative features new contextual research about the exhibition and its reception, as well as a complete gallery of the artworks in the show.

Organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the Department of Art History, and the Digital and Computational Studies Initiative.
