    In conjunction with exhibition "The Art of Elizabeth Catlett", the University of Delaware is hosting an opening reception in Mechanical Hall. Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012) is widely considered to be one of the most important 20th century African American artists. This exhibition comes from the collection of Dr. Samella Lewis (b.1924), an artist, collector, historian and author, who was Catlett's lifelong friend. In addition to celebrating Catlett's art, the exhibition includes examples of work by Catlett's husband, Mexican artist Francisco "Pancho" Mora (1922-2002) and by Lewis.
