Thomas loaned the art for Macy’s in partnership with the Romare Bearden Foundation.  Bearden’s works in the show at Lenox Square on the second floor include “Conversation” and his famous Jazz Series.  Bearden, one of the most important artists of the 20th Century, is the only African-American artist to have a solo show organized by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
