Local Women in their Crowns: A Portraits and Stories Community Project

February 28 - May 31


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 will capture portraits and the shared stories of black women of all ages and backgrounds in their church hats. The culminating exhibition will serve as a celebration of African American culture and tradition to be displayed at the Arts Council of Princeton, the Princeton Public Library, and the lobbies of McCarter Theatre.
