“GRACE” opened in November 2018 and ran through February 2019 at the museum. The exhibit tells the visual story of the tradition of African American women wearing hats, often called church hats, which has cultural and spiritual significance in the African American community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists which includes 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. “Grace” was then presented at the Hennepin Theatre Trust from April to May 2019 with additional artists including Griffin, Melodee Strong, Sean Garrison, Christopheraaron Deanes, and Christopher Harrison.
