Money. It’s the first thing you’ll probably think of when you read the title of this new exhibit at McColl Center for Visual Arts. If that’s the case, you’re partially right about the reference. This exhibit does feature what appears to be money, but also opens the doors to “creative” currency. Organized by Core Visual Art — a collective of six former McColl Center affiliate artists, including Daniel Allegrucci, Crista Camarroto, Diane Hughes, Ashley Lathe, Laura McCarthy and Felicia van Bork — the idea is to create dialogue around forms of exchange. A piece in the exhibit, inspired by the exchanging of ideas, is “State Currencies.” For it, artists came up with their own ideas of currency for all the states in the U.S., based on ongoing political drama. Folks attending the opening reception can add their two cents to an interactive work. Opening reception on Nov. 22. (Anita Overcash) Free admission
An exhibit comprised of photos from Civil Rights protests – which helped the world to understand this nation must change -- captured by photographers during the 1950s and 1960s. Featuring Carolina photographers Don Sturkey, Bruce Roberts, James Peeler, Cecil Williams, and others this exhibit focuses on the photographer’s experiences as they recorded Civil Rights history. Part of the Destination Freedom campaign; a two-year series to commemorate significant milestones and anniversaries of the Civil Rights Movement, Focus on Justice illustrates a point in history in which we are indebted to the photographers who spread the word of this struggle through images.
In response to exhibit Network of Mutuality; which examines through art various social conditions and components that energized the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and how those issues of race and equality are still present in society today, local artist create pieces on the topic of Civil Rights struggles within our region. Works will include Rosalia Torres-Weiner’s artwork commemorating the counter-protest of the KKK/Neo-Nazi rally held in Charlotte as well as panels created from the “View from the Other Side” school project held over the summer of 2013.
In late 1956, over the course of several months, LIFE magazine published a series of articles about life in the segregated South, focusing on Greenville, SC. The series…, “ambitiously and simply titled The Background of Segregation, explored the emotionally and politically charged issue at a time when the Civil Rights movement was barely in its infancy.” Images and excerpts from the articles provide a direct look at everyday life under segregation.
