Through Their Eyes: Contemporary Artwork in the Underground Railroad Exhibit
September 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
September 16, 2023 at 4 pm
Join us for a one-hour lecture about our permanent exhibit on the Underground Railroad in the greater Upper Chesapeake Bay region. The National Park Service recently designated the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum’s exhibit, Underground Railroad: Other Voices of Freedom, as a National Underground Network to Freedom site.
Learn about the artists who created the powerful original artwork in The Underground Railroad: Other Voices of Freedom exhibit at the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum. Leslie Kaufman, art curator and President of Philadelphia Sculptors, will illuminate the process of selecting artists, their personal connections to the subject matter, and the special creative techniques they used. Art is a critical part of this important exhibit.
