Jitterbugs II

A colorful screenprint that depicts abstracted figures dancing. A brown-skinned man wearing a black suit and orange shoes energetically dances with a brown-skinned woman wearing a yellow dress and blue shoes. To the right of the woman are orange shapes that resemble musical instruments. The background is divided into blocks of color—the top left is pale yellow, the top right is white, and the bottom third is filled with vertical blue stripes.
