Mission Statement

The Romare Bearden Foundation was established in 1990 as a nonprofit organization by the artist's estate to preserve and perpetuate the legacy of Romare Bearden (1911-1988), an American artist of African-American heritage, who is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented and original visual artists of the twentieth century. From 1990 until her death in 1996, Nanette Rohan Bearden, the artist's wife and a noted dancer and choreographer, was president of the Foundation.

Description

For over a decade, the Foundation has honored Bearden's memory and preserved and perpetuated his artistic legacy by supporting educational programs, special projects, exhibitions, critical scholarship and seminal publications that deepen appreciation of and access to Bearden's extraordinary art and life. In addition, the Foundation acknowledges the professional and personal encouragement Bearden generously provided other artists, as well as his broad intellectual and scholarly interests, by supporting the creative and intellectual development of up-and-coming African-American artists and scholars.
