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 captures portraits and the shared stories of Black women of all ages and backgrounds in their church hats. The culminating exhibition serves as a celebration of African American culture and tradition on display at the Arts Council of Princeton, the Princeton Public Library, and the lobbies of McCarter Theatre.
Photography by Bentrice Jusu and S. Bola Okoya.

This exhibition is being held in collaborations with Migrations, a community-wide investigation of the theme of migration taking place throughout Princeton from February through May, 2018.
