Black Lives Matter and “Personal History” - In the Gallery and On Stage

Wednesday, November 10 at 6:00pm

Virtual Event

In conjunction with the Black Lives Matter Grant Program Exhibition, the museum and the UO Department of Theater Arts will collaborate on an innovative program bringing together artists in the exhibition and members of the cast for the department’s winter play, Personal History. Written by Dominic Taylor of the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television, the drama tells the story of “an African-American couple as they navigate three moments in American history, stretched out over a century in the city of Chicago.” The UO production will be directed by Dr. Stanley Coleman. The JSMA/Theater event will include a short video of UO actors performing scenes from the play and a conversation between actors, production members, and artists in the exhibition. The artists, including a number who are current or recent UO students as well, will also discuss their works on view.
