AAMP invites you to join us for ArtBreak online, a lunchtime art talk and exhibition tour led by the Museum’s curatorial staff. ArtBreak allows for an opportunity to learn more about the Museum’s curatorial staff. ArtBreak allows for an opportunity to learn more about the Museum’s special exhibition offering through an informal, conversational tour. This season, ArtBreak focuses on the overarching themes in the practice of Richard J. Watson, AAMP’s Artist-in-Residence whose work will be on display through March 2022 in the exhibition “Portals + Revelations: Beyond Realities.

Richard J. Watson, an alumnus of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, is widely recognized as a representational and collage artist. He has to his credit many murals throughout the city of Philadelphia, including liturgical murals within the chapel of the Church of the Advocate, a mosaic tile centerpiece within the Creative and Performing Arts High School, and the official portrait of former Mayor of Philadelphia, W. Wilson Goode, in the Mayor’s Reception Room at City Hall, Philadelphia. Watson is the Artist-in- Residence / Exhibits Manager at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, with his paintings and murals included in numerous private and public collections.
