Unchained: Allan Rohan Crite, Spirituality and Black Activism is on view at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art, Feb. 20 to May 8 — the first exhibition to explore the spiritual art of Crite, reflecting the African American quest for racial justice in the years leading up to the Civil Rights Movement.
The exhibition brings together more than 60 of the artist’s paintings, watercolors and works on paper which reveal the connections between Crite’s (1910–2007) art and faith. It’s one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as part of the Art Bridges Initiative.
