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

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Virtual Event

In conjunction with the Black Lives Matter Grant Program Exhibition, the museum and the UO Department of Theatre 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/Theatre 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.

A Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art Collaboratoin with the UO Department of Theatre Arts.
