Getting to the Soul of a Nation at the Broad + Brunch | 8/18

from 45.00

On Sunday August 18th, you are invited to dive into Soul of a Nation with us during a very special private guided tour at the Broad Museum.

Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power shines a bright light on the vital contribution of Black artists made over two decades, beginning in 1963 at the height of the civil rights movement. Featuring the work of more than 60 influential artists and including vibrant paintings, powerful sculptures, street photography, murals, and more, this landmark exhibition is a rare opportunity to see era-defining artworks that changed the face of art in America.

Our tour will focus on the many female artists featured in this phenomenal exhibit, and we will mix and mingle over brunch at the beautiful and delicious Otium restaurant before the tour.

All tickets include the tour and entrance to the Soul of A Nation exhibit, and full experience tickets include 1 brunch item + coffee or tea (excluding the gnocchi & short rib, inclusive of tax + tip).

Full experience: $75 early bird through 8/3 at midnight; $80 thereafter

More about the exhibit:

Soul of a Nation explores how social justice movements, as well as stylistic evolutions in visual art (such as Minimalism and abstraction), were powerfully expressed in the work of artists including Romare Bearden, Barkley Hendricks, Noah Purifoy, Martin Puryear, Faith Ringgold, Betye Saar, Alma Thomas, Charles White, and William T. Williams. Los Angeles-based artists appear throughout Soul of a Nation, and more deeply in three specific galleries, foregrounding the significant role of Los Angeles in the art and history of the civil rights movement and the subsequent activist era, and the critical influence and sustained originality of the city’s artists, many of whom have lacked wider recognition.
