GRACE Exhibit extended to February 28

This exhibit has been so popular that we are extending it through Black History Month! "Grace" tells the visual story of African American women wearing hats, often called church hats, which has cultural and spiritual significance in the African American community. The exhibit features photography by Walter Griffin and paintings by Beverly Tipton Hammond. The exhibit also includes a collection of hats provided by Kevin Henderson of Mr. H's hats.

Check out news coverage of the exhibit and interviews with the artists:
