We are Selma: The Selma Portrait Project by Kathryn Mayo Exhibition Opening
August 24, 2017 - September 29, 2017
Department of Art and Art History alumna Kathryn Mayo, a native of Selma, Alabama, returns to her home territory to present an important exhibition: We Are Selma: The Selma Portrait Project. Mayo decided to return to Selma for her sabbatical leave from Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, California, where she serves as photography professor. She set up a makeshift studio in Selma and began creating large 11 x 14 inch wet plate collodion portraits of Selma residents and recording interviews with the participants. The exhibition beautifully reflects the sitter and their attachment to a city with such storied history.
