New York University’s 80WSE Galleries are proud to host a three-month exhibition of the work of the historic African-American printmaker, draftsman, painter, and NYU professor Hale Woodruff (1900-1980). The exhibition—titled “Rising Up: Hale Woodruff’s Murals at Talladega College”—is on a three-year, nine-city tour and features six large murals by the renowned artist. The NYU exhibition is the only New York location on the tour.

The exhibition will run from Saturday, July 20, through Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, at the NYU 80WSE Galleries, which are located at 80 Washington Square East between West 4th Street and Washington Place on the NYU campus. The exhibition is sponsored by NYU’s Faculty Resource Network and the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

The murals were commissioned by Talladega College in Alabama, which is their permanent home. Woodruff has a deep connection to NYU, where he was a faculty member for more than 20 years.
