"A New Twist on Art Collecting" & Tour at the  Paul Robeson House & Museum “A New Twist on Art Collecting” & Paul Robeson House & Museum Tour
Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021 | 2:00-3:00 p.m. | FREE
Lecturer: Sherry L. Howard, author, art collector, and Robeson House volunteer
As part of the Parlor Talks series, Robeson House volunteer Sherry L. Howard will offer a presentation and book signing for her new book ART WITH HEART: How I Built a Sweet Collection by Buying Cheap at Auction. Sherry has been collecting art at auctions for years. Her collection encompasses many artists from the Philadelphia region, including Samuel J. Brown, Julius Bloch, Columbus Knox, Moe Brooker and Ed Loper Sr. A chapter in the book features the work of Roland Ayers.
Tour of Paul Robeson House & Museum:
Visitors will be able to tour the exciting new exhibit Paul Robeson: His Movies, His Music, His Message. The exhibit tells the story of the accomplishments of Robeson’s ancestors and Robeson himself - through photos and other memorabilia of his talents as a singer, movie and stage actor, and social activist. Robeson instilled courage and dignity in the songs he sang and the characters he portrayed. His rendition of “Ol’ Man River” was sung with such heart that it became a message of defiance as well as his trademark song.
NOTE: The first part of the exchange, “Remembering Paul Robeson: Up Close and Personal,” will be held at 2 pm. Oct. 9, 2021, at the Woodmere Museum. The program is a conversation between Vernoca L. Michael, former executive director of the Paul Robeson House & Museum, and Hildy Tow, the Robert L. McNeil, Jr. Curator of Education, Woodmere Art Museum. The conversation is inspired by a lithograph of Robeson by the artist Roland Ayers, on view in Woodmere's exhibition Roland Ayers: The Calligraphy of Dreams.
Robeson House supporters are encouraged to stay for Woodmere's jazz concert at the Museum's members' rate of $15/ticket. The concert features vocalist Jackie Greggs who joins The Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble in a tribute to Al Green. People who want to attend the Jazz Concert on Oct. 9 will need a code to obtain the members' price. The code is "Robeson"
