William H. Johnson: An American Modern

The Arlington Museum of Art is proud to present Arlington’s first Smithsonian exhibition, William H. Johnson: An American Modern. This exhibit, curated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibits Services (SITES), consists of 20 pieces of Johnson’s work including paintings, drawings, and pictures. Shown in conjunction with the Museum’s Harlem Renaissance exhibit, it is one of the largest collections of work by African-American artists shown in North Texas.

In addition to the exhibits, the Museum will be hosting several supporting events focusing on the Harlem Renaissance. These include a Juneteenth celebration, a day of jazz and poetry reading, our own Night at the Apollo competition and a lecture series. Tickets for the events with admissions will be made available at the door or online.  Please visit this website periodically for updated information.
