28 Sep 2020 Exhibition on display
“Let Us March On,” which documents and contextualizes the Black Lives Matter movement in Arkansas, will be on display through Jan. 22 at the Windgate Museum of Art.
The exhibition will be on display in the Window Gallery, which is visible at all times from the exterior of the museum. A wide variety of virtual programs will accompany the exhibition, including virtual talks by the curator and participating artists, films, panel discussions and podcasts. Guest curator for the exhibition is Stephanie Sims, director of the museum and cultural center at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
The exhibition includes a rich mix of documentary photographs, artwork, artifacts, interactives and narrative text. “Let Us March On” reveals how the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement motivated activism amongst youth and allies to advocate against racial inequality and police brutality nationwide. The exhibition looks at those stories from a local perspective but situated within the larger national and international movement, because change begins locally.
