Would you like to be a part of our fall exhibition, Etched in Collective History? Artist Shinique Smith needs donated items to create an installation, in honor of the lives lost in the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing in 1963. "I will be gathering materials during the installation of the work, but I wish to involve the Museum's community," says Smith. "My ultimate goal is to create an environment that viewers will be able to walk through and contemplate the past, present, and future with a sense of commemoration and joy."
If you are able to donate, we are accepting the following gently used items: doll clothing and accessories, children's clothing (infant-18 years) and accessories, action figures, storybooks, and stuffed toys (nothing larger than 24"). We will collect items through May 10 at the desk in front of Steiner Auditorium during Museum hours. If your item is not used in the installation, we will donate it to a local charitable organization. Thank you for contributing to Art Speaks: 50 Years Forward!
