EXHIBITION: An Elegy to Rosewood
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - August 26 @ 5:00 pm
Organized and curated by Curator Amy Galpin and Yady Rivero, Assistant Curator, Frost Art Museum in Miami, with Florida International University (FIU) Professor M. Alexandra Cornelius, the Creale School of Art and the Hannibal Square Heritage Center Presents “An Elegy to Rosewood,” an exhibition in commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the Rosewood Massacre.
Comprised of photographs and heirlooms from the Jenkins family, this groundbreaking exhibition explores the Jenkins family story and the way in which it became intertwined — as did those of so many Black families in the South — with the struggle for public recognition of the region’s legacy of racism. A painting by artist Pedro Jermaine will also be on display.
A website created by the Frost Museum to accompany the exhibition features a virtual reality tour of the exhibition and written reflections from featured contemporary artists. The exhibition includes design projects by FIU Students from Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture, a collaboration initiated by board member of Real Rosewood Foundation and FIU Professor, Dr. Kalai Mathee.
The exhibition is on view from May 12, 2023 through August 26, 2023. The Heritage Center is open Tuesdays through Thursdays 12-4 PM, Fridays 12-5 PM, and Saturdays 10 AM-5 PM.
Funding for this exhibition and related programming 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.
