Elegy for Mary Turner
Douglas & Linda Paul Gallery Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 12:30 to 5 p.m.
Located on the second floor of The Englert Theatre
Exhibition: August 2017 – October 2017
Opening event + performance: Saturday, August 26 at 6 p.m.
Dawn Harbor, Rachel Marie-Crane Williams and Christopher- Rasheem McMillan explore the horrible story of Mary Turner’s murder through art, dance, and spoken word on the stage of the Englert Theater. This story is pivotal in the larger history of lynching and racial violence in our country. Prints by Rachel Marie-Crane Williams and sculptures by Dawn Harbor will be on exhibit in the gallery above the Englert.
After the performance we hope you can join us for an intimate discussion related to art, race, history, white supremacy, and violence.
