NORFOLK, Va. – Through January 8, 2023, the Chrysler Museum of Art is exhibiting Black Orpheus: Jacob Lawrence and the Mbari Club. It represents the debut museum presentation of Jacob Lawrence’s Nigeria series of paintings and drawings and also the first in-depth look at the international artists who were members of the renowned Mbari Artists and Writers Club, many of whom Lawrence met during an extended stay in Nigeria in 1964. These artists, including Lawrence, contributed to Black Orpheus, a radical arts and culture journal published in Nigeria between 1957 and 1975.
