EXHIBITION | A Picture Gallery of the Soul

THURS. 9/22 7-9 PM.
At the Regis Center for Art, come see three centuries worth of photographic expressions ranging from traditional photography and 19th-century daguerreotypes to Instagram posts and mixed-media from Black American artists. The exhibition, A Picture Gallery of the Soul, features the work of over 100 artists honoring Black history, culture, and politics in the U.S. The title of the exhibition was inspired by Frederick Douglass’s theoretical framework for “understanding the implications of photography on public discourse.” Specifically, it was named after his 1861 speech, Lecture on Pictures, during the Civil War. The exhibition will be up until Dec. 10, but come tonight for the public reception.
