Celebrating Romare Bearden's "The Block"







Fabulous Fiancé (Special Friend’s new moniker!) and I recently trekked up to The Big Apple for a reception in celebration of Romare Bearden’s “The Block” at the Metropolian Museum of Art.

The reception was coordinated by the Metro-Manhattan Chapter of The Links, Incorporated and the Central New Jersey Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. Donna Williams (the Met’s Chief Audience Development Officer – Multicultural Audience Development Initiative) was instrumental in coordinating the event. She is a member of the Central New Jersey Chapter of The Links, Incorporated.

The place was jammed packed as people mixed and mingled throughout the evening.

Pictures won’t do justice to this incredible piece of work - you need to experience its’ richness and depth. This link provides more information on educational materials, events, and activities.
