Requiem for Mother Emanuel:  Carolina Artists Respond

Wednesday, February 8, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mint Museum Randolph      

FREE and open to the public

Former N.C. Senator Malcolm Graham, whose sister was lost in the June 2015 tragedy at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, shares his response to it, the nine-painting exhibition Requiem for Mother Emanuel by Artist Dr. Leo Twiggs, and his personal loss. Then Carolina visual and performing artists will respond to the art to honor those lost in the tragedy with presentations of music, dance, spoken word, mixed media art and paintings. Following the program, guests will have an opportunity to chat with the artists, view their works of art, see the exhibition, and respond themselves via interactive message boards.

This program is generous co-sponsored by Quincy and Christy Lee, Juan and Jonell Logan, and community partner Friendship Missionary Baptist Church-Charlotte.
