Series 2
Artwork, 1940-1992
Box 10, OP 3 and 27

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of original works of art by Samella Lewis, a sketchbook, and photographs of her drawings, linocuts and paintings. Of particular interest is an image of an untitled sculpture created during Lewis' tenure at Hampton University. She destroyed the sculpture after photographing it because it was not the property of Hampton University and it was too large to ship.

See also: Series 6: Other printed material, which includes greeting cards with original artwork by Lewis and other artists.
