PHILLIPS ARTWORK INSPIRATION: Jacob Lawrence’s The Migration Series
Students observed and discussed Jacob Lawrence’s paintings in The Migration Series, while learning about the causes and effects of the Great Migration in the United States. Inspired by Lawrence’s style and subject matter, students reflected and researched for their own painting that depicts a symbolic migration scene personal to their identity. This project enabled students to empathize with the obstacles black Americans faced in the Great Migration, and connect to contemporary migration issues that may affect themselves or their peers.
