Announcing our Fall 2018 Art @ the Center Exhibit: Unique As We Are Alike, Contemporary Works by Lumbee Artists
During the Spring and Fall semesters the Center hosts art exhibits as a means to nurture the creative expression of the diverse and changing South.
We are elated to announce that we will be featuring the work of two Lumbee artists, community-based visual artist Ashley Minner of Baltimore’s Lumbee community, and artist Alisha Locklear Monroe from the home of the Lumbee people, Robeson County, North Carolina.
Through a series of mixed-media portraits and paintings, this exhibit presents an exploration of contemporary Lumbee identity that focuses on Lumbees defining themselves and their commonalities despite years of others defining them. This visual journey elicits a sense of connectedness, compassion, and empathy that highlights the commonalities we all hold while showcasing the unique nature of Lumbee identity.
This exhibit will be on display after its opening reception on September 14th, 2018!
Our opening reception will be featuring an additional aspect of Lumbee excellence as CSAS director, Dr. Malinda Maynor Lowery, celebrates the publication of her forthcoming book, The Lumbee Indians: An American Struggle,
