$20,000 toward the exhibition and accompanying catalogue Charles Alston and the “306” Legacy, organized by guest curator Julia Hotton. In 1935, Alston established the WPA-funded “306” group, which served as a supportive network for artists such as Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence and Norman Lewis. Through a rich vocabulary of abstraction and realism, Alston’s paintings and sculpture explore themes of both everyday life in Harlem and the American landscape.
