40 ACRES: Weeksville by Sandy Williams IV – Exhibition Opening

Sat, Feb 10, 2024 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm

Join us for the highly anticipated exhibition opening of Sandy Williams IV’s 40 ACRES: Weeksville on Saturday, Feb 10th at 7pm.

Williams’ 40 ACRES pays homage to the memory of Freedmen communities and acknowledges histories and social oppressions that are often unseen and paved over.

Dive deeper into Williams’ artistic journey and the making of 40 ACRES: Weeksville during an intimate screening and discussion with the artist and Erica Harper, Weeksville’s Vice President of Learning and Engagement. We will also hear from some of the community members featured in the film, as well as a drum performance to close out the event.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
