In conjunction with McCarter Theatre Center‘s production of Crowns, directed by Regina Taylor, the Arts Council of Princeton and McCarter have partnered to create Local Women in their Crowns: A Portraits and Stories Community Project.

Inspired by the book of the same name from which Crowns was created, this visual storytelling project captures portraits and the shared stories of black women of all ages and backgrounds in church hats. The culminating exhibition serves as a celebration of African American culture and tradition, on view at the Arts Council of Princeton, the Princeton Public Library, and the lobbies of McCarter Theatre.
