Begins in the Museum Foyer
Gallery talks offer visitors the chance to engage with a single work, or pairing of works, for a 30-minute talk led by Museum curators and educators, as well as local artists and scholars. Featuring The Prize: Seven Decades of Lyrical Response to the Call for Civil Rights, this talk will be lead by Dr. Redell Hearn and explore how the quest for social justice in one era inspired freedom of expression that continues today. Excerpts from songs that correspond to the exhibition will be played and discussed in relationship to the artwork on display.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
Organized by Dr. Redell Hearn, Curator of Art and Civil Rights for the Museum and Tougaloo College, The exhibition and its programming are components of the Civil Rights Initiative, a partnership between the Mississippi Museum of Art and Tougaloo College supported by the Henry Luce Foundation.
