An Elegy to Rosewood Exhibition Opening Reception
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Crealde School of Art and the Hannibal Square Heritage Center present “An Elegy to Rosewood,” a touring exhibition organized and curated by the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University. This ground-breaking exhibition explores the family story of Lizzie Robinson Jenkins and the way in which it became intertwined with the struggle for public recognition of the region’s legacy of racism. Personal artifacts are shown alongside a work by painter Pedro Jermaine.
The public is invited to attend an opening reception beginning at 7 pm on May 12 followed by a gallery talk with Amy Galpin, Yady Rivero, and Lizzie Jenkins at 8 pm.
Funding for this program and exhibition are provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Crealde School of Art. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
