Works of Bearden and Hunt Are Displayed; Scenes of Negro Life Depicted by Painter

By Grace GLUECK

This is the year of the black art show and, with a number of institutions around the country already having recognized that fact, could the Museum of Modern Art be far behind? Certainly not. By way of proof, it currently double-bills the ouevres of two well-known Afro-Americans, the New York painter-collagist Romare Bearden and the Chicago sculptor Richard Hunt. Both shows open tomorrow.
