520 1  "At Spelman College in the mid-1930s Hale Woodruff and 
       Nancy Elizabeth Prophet established a premiere institution
       for art instruction for African Americans in the 
       Southeast. While Woodruff is widely recognized for 
       originating the Atlanta University Annual Exhibition of 
       Painting, Sculpture and Prints by Negro Artists, his own 
       artistic accomplishments have not been adequately 
       examined. Although Prophet created an impressive body of 
       work (most of which is currently lost or destroyed) and 
       was regarded as one of the most talented American 
       sculptors by American and European critics alike in the 
       late 1920s and 1930s, her work has never before been the 
       subject of an exhibition outside of her home state of 
       Rhode Island." "Hale Woodruff, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and
       the Academy brings Woodruff's and Prophet's lives and work
       into a critical dialogue for the first time. This volume 
       highlights recently conserved works in Spelman College's 
       collection, features more than fifty paintings and works 
       on paper by Woodruff and, for the first time, presents all
       extant sculptures by Prophet. Highlighting what these 
       artists were able to accomplish in Atlanta, Hale Woodruff,
       Nancy Elizabeth Prophet and the Academy positions Woodruff
       and Prophet as institution builders who challenged and 
       transformed the academy for African Americans."--BOOK
