In “Wrapping it Up at the Lafayette,” renowned African-American collage artist Romare Bearden re-created the lively heyday of Harlem’s legendary Lafayette Theater. Bearden (1911 – 1988) lived close to the Harlem theater, which was renowned in the 1920s and 1930s for plays and musical revues. Using magazine pictures, paper and fabric, he created several scenes from the audience’s perspective. Inspired in part by his love of jazz, Bearden expertly created collages that portrayed the character of African-American culture.
