Schweinfurth Art Center


Quinn A. Hunter, whose exhibition “Here/Hear” is on display at the Schweinfurth Art Center, will give a talk about her work June 18, 2022, as part of the City of Auburn’s Juneteeth Celebration. Her exhibit focuses on erasure of Black history in both the South and the North. Hunter’s exhibit contains work from two recent series. In “I See You Now, I Hear You Then,” she presents chandeliers and rugs she weaved by hand out of hair, referencing antebellum plantations that ignore their slave-owning past. In “Paradise: The Myth of a Liberal North,” she examines the destruction of two Black neighborhoods in Detroit that were destroyed to build a highway. Admission to the exhibits, including Hunter’s talk, is free all day Saturday.
