POSTER - AYO SCOTT'S HARLEM RENAISSANCE
Harlem Renaissance 80 x 59 painting, Divinely Crafted, created by New Orleans, artist Ayo Scott for the 100 Men Hall's centennial commemorating the Harlem Renaissance.
The art print has the 100 Men Hall logo and is fine cotton paper that is 18x24 or 9x12.
Founded in 1894 by 12 civic-minded African American Bay Saint Louis residents whose goal was to “assist its members when sick, bury its dead in a respectable manner, and knit friendship” the Hall grew to become a robust performance venue included on “the chitlin circuit”, an historic nationwide network of performance spaces, and a stop on the Mississippi Blues Trail map.
From as early as he can remember, Scott found himself immersed in the art community of his city, New Orleans. He grew to love the studio time he spent with his father, artist John T. Scott: 40-year professor of art and recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship. He never felt pressured to be an artist, but his family always provided him with opportunity, guidance and support for his endeavors from bronze casting to papermaking.
The painting was partially funded by a grant from MS Coast National Heritage Area.
