"Homage to Harriet" Exhibition Reception
3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Join us for the Homage to Harriet Art Exhibition Reception. Harriet Tubman was an African American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the Civil War. Born into slavery in Dorchester County, Tubman later escaped and became a leader of the Underground Railroad, the network of routes and safe houses used by those fleeing from slavery. Tubman is widely recognized as an American hero who shepherded numerous slaves to freedom. To commemorate the centennial of her passing, the museum presents this exhibition of artwork inspired by her life and legacy.
Homage to Harriet will be on view on the third floor Arts Wall until June 23, 2013.
Open to the public.
Free admission during reception hours.
