Procession

Looking for a free museum after an expensive morning, I went to the Chicago Cultural Center and found an exhibition called “Procession” of paintings by Norman Lewis of Harlem between the 1930s and 1970s. Some appealed to me because of his vivid use of colour, others through themes like journey, procession, and ritual, with lots of small figures. He wrote about one of them, “Everyone going some place, nobody arriving at any place.”
