FREE, reservations not required

Join us for a participatory conversation on representation and our perspectives on the American South, held around the picnic table in The Levee. Led by Miranda Lash, Curator of Contemporary Art, Speed Art Museum and co-organizer of the groundbreaking exhibition Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art (Speed Art Museum and Nasher Museum of Art, 2016-2017).

About The Levee: A Photographer in the American South: Originated at the Cincinnati Art Museum, this special exhibition presents photographs by Sohrab Hura (Indian, b. 1981). The Cincinnati Art Museum is the first museum to exhibit The Levee, a suite of photographs taken by Hura on a road trip following the course of the Mississippi, from its confluence with the Ohio River to the last inhabited reaches of the Delta. It is a work about perspective, place, longing and hope. Learn more
