Details:A 1964 New York Post headline announced, “In Jackson, Mississippi, art is a matter of black and white. Whites won’t come to the Negro art gallery and Negroes aren’t allowed in the white museum.” The sentiment was penned from a distance, and somewhat liberal in its reference to a museum; nevertheless, the boundaries that separated black and white were clearly defined—and vehemently maintained—in some segments of the local art community. Yet, two institutions, on either side of the social divide, were developing complementary art collections, and in some cases works from the same artists. A Tale of Two Collections offers one chapter in the visual story of the relationship between the Mississippi Museum of Art and Tougaloo College by showcasing works from eight artists held in both collections. The exhibition features the work of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Joan Miró (1893-1983), Marie Hull (1890-1980), Hale Woodruff (1900-1980), Romare Bearden (1911-1988), Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012), Benny Andrews (1930-2006) and Thomas Eloby (1944-2001).The two earliest works are of the same subject matter interpreted by two different artists Robert Seldon Duncanson (1821-1872) and Heppie En Earl Wicks (1857-1940).
