This conversational audio tour for the traveling exhibition â€œRomare Bearden: A Black Odyssey,â€ gives listeners new intellectual inroads into the works of Romare Bearden and into the bewitching heart of Homerâ€™s â€œOdyssey.â€ Voices on the tour include Dr. Robert Oâ€™Meally, exhibition curator and Zora Neale Hurston Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He is joined by Diedra Harris-Kelley, Beardenâ€™s niece and the co-director of the Romare Bearden Foundation. Hip hop multimedia artist and composer Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, provides additional perspective, contributing his own thoughts about Beardenâ€™s genius. Jazz musician Branford Marsalis contributes to the audio tour with the song â€œSea Breeze,â€ originally composed by the multi-talented Romare Bearden. "Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey," from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), represents the first full-scale presentation of these works outside of New York City and is on a seven-city national tour through 2014. â€œRomare Bearden: A Black Odysseyâ€ and its related educational resources are supported by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The companion book Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey was written by Robert G. O'Meally (DC Moore Gallery, New York, 2008). App designed and developed by GuideOne Audio produced by Acoustiguide.
