Get a special preview of MoMA's new exhibition: One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North. Capturing the multi-decade mass movement of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North, artist Jacob Lawrence masterfully completed a series of 60 small paintings. Lawrence's work is considered a landmark in modern art. For the first time in over 20 years, all 60 panels will be reunited in this new exhibit.
