Collector Patrick Diamond Tells His Bearden Story
From the Oral History Project:
Tell Your Bearden Story, a new series as part of the Oral History Project. Foundation Co-Director, Diedra Harris-Kelley engages author Patrick Diamond in a conversation about his memoir, “The Incredible Joy of Collecting African American Art: My Journey from Frog Town, S.C. to the National Gallery,” and about his chance meeting with the artist Romare Bearden.
This event will take place online virtually from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM on April 22, 2021 (EST).
Tell Your Bearden Story is a new series of the Foundation’s Oral History Project that aims to highlight the real encounters of Bearden’s friends and family. These stories illuminate new perspectives, and round out what scholars and researchers often miss about histories. The conversation will be introduced and moderated by Victoria McCraven, the 2020-21 Romare Bearden Graduate Museum Fellow at the St. Louis Museum of Art.
