Requiem for Mother Emanuel—Moving from Tragedy to Redemption—Church Day One
Church Day Two on February 19
Sunday, January 29 at 2-4 p.m. at Mint Museum Randolph
FREE and open to the public
These church-day events are a response to South Carolina artist Dr. Leo Twiggs’ nine works of art in the exhibition Requiem for Mother Emanuel, which honors those lost to tragedy in June 2015 at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. During these special Sunday programs, local churches will remember this time of mourning and redemption with vocalists, musicians, and choir selections. Guests will have an opportunity to view the exhibition and respond themselves via interactive message boards.
