The Saga of Faith Mission is a panel discussion exploring the preservation of important local black history and the role of religion in folk art through the story of Anderson Johnson.
The panel will include the original members of the Committee to save the Faith Mission, as well as those who knew Elder Anderson Johnson himself and collected his artwork. Also included will be the co-curator of our permanent exhibit "Working in the Spirit: The Visionary Art & Life of Elder Anderson Johnson 1915-1998", who will shed light on how to curate a space meant to re-create the sensory experience of entering Johnson's Faith Mission.
The discussion will be preceded by the introduction of prolific Folk artist Everna Lee Taylor who will display in our Foyer Gallery from February 1-March 31, 2018.
The afternoon will be concluded with a Q&A and reception. RSVP is recommended.
