Your #Panel61 by Antionette Simmons HodgesSubmitted by
“The Protestors”- acrylic 20” x 16” - What would Jacob Lawrence 61st panel look like? Surely, Lawrence would continue with the themes related to social issues of life in the cities. To follow his themes of the conditions in the cities, I painted “The Protestors,” using Lawrence’s simple color pallet and stylized figures. The painting is of a demonstrations for human rights, which could have taken place in the sixties for racial equality, or today showing unity for a common cause pertaining to immigration or protesting the many shootings of unarmed African Americans.
