Join us for two new exhibitions opening this March. In the Main Gallery, ‘As I Recall Her: Artists Expand the Legacy of the Douglass Women’ is a juried exhibition inspired by Anna Murray Douglass, Rosetta Douglass Sprague, and Annie Douglass. This exhibition builds upon several other initiatives dedicated to the Douglass Women and constitutes a collective effort to expand their legacy and inspire the community. As I Recall Her… is presented in partnership with collaborating organizations 540WMain, Inc. and Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives.
In the LAB Space, ‘Facing Black Women: Shugabanni’ by W. Michelle Harris features a mosaic video portrait of just a few of the Black women of Rochester who shape this place into a community. W. Michelle Harris is a digital media artist who uses code as a medium for engaging discussions as a Black woman in American culture.
