The first major 21st-century museum retrospective on this famed mid-20th century African-American artist features over 100 of his drawings, prints, and oil paintings. The exhibit examines White’s career and impact in the cities he called home: Chicago (where he was born); New York (where he gained acclaim and joined social causes); and Los Angeles (where he developed his mature art and became a civil rights activist). There are also two concurrent, and complementary, exhibits in L.A. From Feb. 16–Sept. 14, “Life Model: Charles White and His Students” is at LACMA’s satellite gallery at Charles White Elementary School (which is named after White), and the California African American Museum, an institution whose establishment White championed, presents “Plumb Line: Charles White and the Contemporary” from March 6–Aug. 25.
