WEAR News3 - COLOR IN FREEDOM: JOURNEY ALONG THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

COLOR IN FREEDOM: JOURNEY ALONG THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

The Pensacola Museum of Art (PMA) is pleased to announce Color in Freedom: Journey Along the Underground Railroad, February 6-April 4. Color in Freedom consists of four movements that track the flow of events in the lives of those who traveled along the Underground Railroad: The Unknown World, Living in Bondage - Life on the Plantation, The Journey of Escape, and finally, Color in Freedom.

Artist Joseph Holston’s visual interpretation and expression of human experiences and emotions within the framework of this distinct period in American history captures the essence of the courage and determination required to escape, enhances understanding of the condition of slavery and explores the powerful instinct toward freedom.

Holston's uses the power of color organized into compositions that relate to a physical environment, specifically to the locations where travelers followed the Underground Railroad.

Holston’s career has spanned more than 35 years. He has exhibited across the United States, including the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Museum in Washington, DC.

Our Voices Are Many will be performing Freedom Songs, Dances & Poetry inspired by musical & literary works from this period on Saturday, March 21, 2pm. Free Days at the Pensacola Museum of Art: Feb. 21 & March 21.
