St. Mary’s College is in the process of selecting a final design for A Commemorative to Enslaved Peoples of Southern Maryland, an effort inspired by archaeological investigations revealing evidence of two separate and distinct slave quarters: one from the 18th century; the other from the 19th century.
The purpose of the Commemorative is to acknowledge the existence of slavery within the region and remember the resilience of the affected enslaved people.
Please join us to hear the three finalists - Norman Lee & Shane Allbritton of RE:Site (Feb. 12), The studio of Donna Dobberfuhl (Feb. 13), and Steven Prince (Feb. 14) present their concept sketches and models for the design of this important commemorative. There will be an opportunity to provide feedback for each of the artists' presentations.
