EVENT: Celebrate Romare Bearden's 100th Birthday w/Macy's

Between New York Fashion Week and events commemorating our history, February is shaping up to be a month chock full of fetes.  

In conjunction with Black History Month and the late Romare Bearden's 100th birthday, Macy's is celebrating the famed African-American artist and author's work. 

A series of Macy's stores across the country will highlight and pay tribute to the North Carolina native's artistic contributions by showcasing his renowned masterpieces. In addition to displaying his remarkable paintings, reception attendees' ears will also be treated to the delightful sounds of live jazz by artists performing Bearden's music.

Whether you're heading to Macy's this month to pick up a Rachel Roy frock for Valentine's Day or a new compact from the MAC counter, be sure to check out this don't-miss-event at a store near you. 

If you're in the New York City area and plan to attend the reception you'll get a perk! With any purchase of $50 or more, you'll receive a complimentary scarf printed with Bearden's most lauded piece, "The Lamp."
