Friday, May 30, 8-9:30pm during Trolley Night
478 South Main (outdoor projection near MCA's Hyde Gallery)
Assistant Professor Coriana Close and Dr. Cynthia Sadler of the University of Memphis will show recent work made with U of M students during May Trolley Night on South Main. This work comes out of Hidden Histories, a collaboration between the Photography and African American Studies departments at the University of Memphis and the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa. The course focuses on recording lost histories of Southwest Memphis.
Students from various departments are teaming up to record oral histories and create documentary photographs to tell a hidden story of the area. The class will culminate in the creation of an e-book and an exhibition (details to be announced).
